Universal Passage - A Painting For Yesterday


"Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives."

~ A. Sachs

Artist: Wendy Ryan
Title: Universal Passage
Medium: Mixed
Size: 6.5 x .8.5 in
16 X 21 cm
Date: 2007

I actually finished this painting yesterday, but fatigue hit before I could post it here last night.

This piece is Frida "Retablo Style". I've created a Mexican inspired Retablo style frame for this homage to Frida and the Day of the Dead using texture medium and small clay skulls overlaid with metallic tarnished faux bronze. The rustic cross is embellished with a sparkling Swarovski Crystal. Your painting arrives ready to hang.
