Day of the Dead

Shall we Dance?

I have no idea why Day of the Dead images fascinate met. I was thrilled when I discovered that Jose Guadalupe Posada's images are in the public domain! A simple search on the internet will turn up a number of his more famous ones.

I made Photo Shop Elements brushes with a few of the images and played with them. The background on the bottom one, "Shall we Dance?" is a scanned National Geographic Citra-solv technique that can be found at: It's the 8th example in the Nevr-dull, Citra-solv album.

The official date for Day of The Dead in Mexico is Nov. 2, but it's sometimes celebrated on Oct. 31 coinciding with Halloween.

Norton House, Martha's Vineyard

While on a tour of Martha's Vineyard in Sept. our guide pointed out the 9 million dollar Norton house and said, "If you use Norton Software products then you've helped to build this house." After having a weeklong battle with Norton last year when I was locked out of being able to update the AntiVirus software I had renewed and getting nowhere I thought that the house had the perfect makings for a creepy Haunted House!
I'm no longer a Norton Software user!
