I hope they are serving something that sticks to their bones. Pretty cool!!! looks like fun, it had better be because that is right where I am headed!

wunderfull piese

Angel, I want to commend you on all your art. Just fantastic!

Pretty defining painting, it encompass the fascination that Mexico has with death all in one place.

WOW! This is an incredible piece!

I love the celebratory mood of this painting - a nice change from most things to do with death and the after life being sad or miserable. Dianne

Yeah, still me :))) And look at the "face" :) expressions of the skeletons!!! I never thought that one could express such deep intelligence, calmness, love and wisdom even without actual presence of the face... Simply amazing!

Me again :) I think I know now what I loved in this painting...You Angel expressed here quite perfect the union of our physical/material world and invisible to our perceptions spiritual world.....in fact you not only expressed the union of it, even more...you have shown in this piece the actual truth....that the spiritual subtle world is in fact more real and alive, than our seen material world, the world of Maya, Illusions....(the detail that shows it in colors...the food on the table and brown stones of the pyramid, that we consider as alive matter in our living world on Earth...in fact looks so much dead in comparison by beautiful blue-aqua moving substance of invisible or some would say underworld... For the first time in my life I perceived skeletons as actually something very nice and sweet and so much alive! :) Thank You! Really amazing creation!!!

I can't quite explain why...but I really like this one! Something with the light... very nice mystic feeling of this liquid transparent magic light... I think, Angel, you captured quite perfect the expression of this life-substance...life-source, energy, Azoth, prima materia....whatever one may call it... Extraordinary art work!

very very cool love the skulls

hi, Angel thanks for posting a comment on my girl drawing I love this painting, although it creeps me out a bit, the use of color is amazing, and i really get the impression that the pyramid is far far away, you achieved that very nicely...regards. sonya!!!!!
