I make stained glass pictures, stones, etc. and sell them at CANDLE SHED. I do take requests and I was asked if there was any way I could make a Day of the Dead type picture. I thought I could take the challenge and do something with it. Because I didn't know much about the Mexican celebration, I thought I would at least *google* it.

It is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in many cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it attains the quality of a National Holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on November 1–2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day (November 1) and All Souls' Day (November 2).

So this was my one attempt. The size is 8x10 and when you hold it up to the light it kind of glows...

Not sure I will make any more, unless someone asks for one... It was a totally different venue for me.... just thought I would share.
