Amanda Johnson | Song for the Soul (Dia de los Muertos)
acrylic Colored Pencils Sharpie on paper | 2015
This lonely Catrin plays a soulful melody in hopes that his soulmate, who holds his heart, will find her way back to him and they will once again celebrate their life together. With the strum of his guitar and his sugar skull cat at his side, he sings of love, his amor's beautiful gaze and her loving and warm embrace.
This piece is a tribute to Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday and tradition in which loved ones remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones that have passed. Having grown up in southern New Mexico, it is a treasured celebration near and dear to my heart.
Makes a perfect gift for any Day of the Dead or folk art admirer, or keep for yourself! A touching piece that reminds us just how special life and love truly are.
