Piece for Autumn Society Show


I just finished this painting for the upcoming Autumn Society group show that is themed Dia de los Muertos. I don't get to paint people alot so I decided to do a portrait of the Aztec Goddess of the Dead. The flowers around her are Marigolds which are commonly used during the festivities of the holiday.
