This may not be a traditional depiction of the holiday, but it depicts my feelings about life and death.
The bones and eggs symbolize death and life. The sleeping woman could be seen as dead or alive; you choose. Either way, there is a spirit of celebration of both life and death in the painting..Our ancestors may be dust and bones there will always be new life!
The piece is painted on unstretched canvas. I used very large brushes to keep the painting loose. There's lots of texture, due to the wrinkles in the canvas.
