Los Muertos Pintados

Hats from Cheapeaux Fantastiques, created lovingly by hand…adorn the mysterious  models I photograph…They lend a certain magic to any scene or situation…and inside the wearers to be their most  magical selves…

 


The Dead can dance …

And they do …all around us, but not always seen …they are felt, and they come to nurture , whisper or give joy… wanting to be celebrated…and they are … on the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos… and they come …these joyous dancers from the other side.

She walks in both light and shadow, but is not easily visible…When one glimpses her, one never forgets her. Carrying roses, she walks with grace yet her gaze rivets with its power…Her Headdress is made of silk and velvet flowers and delicate feathers, made for her lovingly by hand. She wears it like an art work..and it crowns her as she twirls, dancing through the city’s streets…Her face shows her heart full of love… emblazoned with a small crimson heart, and the blue tones of compassion. Roses adorn her. she carries them as she walks – a beautiful phantom holding ruby red, scarlet and white roses ; passion of the flesh – and purity of the  heart.

June Roses

ROSEangelaOdalisquetiny2Blessing us with their beauty, the roses bloom with Midsummer, regardless of the madness of our human world, and the aspects of the stars… Their magic whispers love in the morning sun as summer graces our world once again with the pleasures of the Solstice…

I am working on a new series inspired by florals, and flowers of all sorts are filling me with inspiration.
