Morning everyone ;o) I have the pleasure this year, to be a sponsor in Magaly's All Hallow's Grim, So Good, So Dark Blog Party ;o)
I have to admit, it took me a while to create something! When I first started, this is what the painting was looking like.
I wanted to show the love of a crow couple. How they mate for life, unless one dies or is captured. As I kept looking at the painting, I kept seeing a skull, but not any skull, a beautiful decorated skull.
Then I darkened the background with some black, to make the color pop more and to create some images ;o)
When I was finished, I asked Magaly to name it. I don't know why? This is the first time I have done that. And, I love the name she came up with! "Calaca Crow In Love". Calaca is a Mexican Spanish name for skeleton. When they use a skull or skeleton during The Mexican Day Of the Dead Festival, the Calacas are depicted as joyous, rather than mournful.
Now, if you would like to win this painting, please go over and say hi to my wicked and beautiful talented writing friend Magaly
and see what she wrote about this painting ;o)
There are also many other giveaways and stories to read. So, while you are there, snoop around my friends, you won't be sorry ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)
