"La Catrina"

This canvas, the actual painting, is only 2x3 inches.

I did this as a gift for a friend who, for some reason, has a thing about squirrels... and dead people. The Day of the Dead is one of her favorite art subjects, as she often makes La Catrinas out of terra cotta, glazes them, and fires them. They look quite nice. Here's my first-ever attempt at a Day of the Dead subject.

Too bad my camera phone is crap, and I took the pics while the paint was still wet. It would look much better now, but it's about 200mi away. Maybe I can get my friend to take a newer pic of this one and "Nutkin".
