I should be packing, because in two days we are moving into our new home. But I wanted a share a few things with you first. Mainly because I'm happy it's October! In honor of that, I've added a few new things to my Boom Boom Prints shop. Each design is available as a variety of products, but I'm just sharing one of each on the blog.

In case you were wondering, sugar skulls are traditionally eaten during Mexico's Day of the Dead, which is a time to honor and pray for loved ones who have passed away. They are made out of cane sugar and brightly decorated with items such as icing, feathers, colored foil, and beads.
You can see why they are so fun to draw and color. I painted one on a pumpkin last year. (I prefer painting pumpkins to carving them. Much less messy).
My original Sugar Skull and Golden Spider drawings are available for sale locally at Artistic Portland.
Ok, that's all I have time to share. I need to do some serious packing. Can't wait to be settled in our new house and have more time to create. The past few weeks have been packed--with good things.

Thanks for explaining about sugar skulls.

A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
