This is an older painting titled "Al Otro Lado". It's acrylic on clayboard. The concept is portraying the Dia de Los Muertos holiday. The figures are heading to the burial grounds to pay respect to the lost loved ones. On the other hand, the spirits of the lost loved ones are heading out to the living world to pay respect to the living. I had a crude gesso surface that I painted on.

Wow this is a painting I have to think about a little bit longer. I love the masquerade... really great and some time later I saw the "ghosts" above :D I think I have to think about this even a little bit longer :) But great painting. It looks very noble and warm :)

Intense in composition and color Joseph. There is this sense of ceremonial movement I find enjoyable and mysterious. Well done.

I love this. For some reason it makes me think of Steampunks

An interesting and disturbing painting Joseph - I think it's good, and well done but I don't think I could live with it!!! :lol:
