This creation wouldn't really fit in with my home decor except during the week I display my personal ofrenda for Day of the Dead his Mary so I didn't buy it. But, it fascinated me and I enjoyed speaking with Reuben and his wife. He owns the Paz Gallery , also home of Portillo Sign and Logo at 411 W. 6th St., San Pedro, CA. He said that Santa Muerte is acrylic and paper on reclaimed material that was part of an old door. If you would like to see more of his work, he can be reached at (310) 753-9194. He doesn't have a website, but does have a Facebook page. I'm going to check out his business next time I'm in San Pedro. He told me that he had a strong affection for this particular Mary.
Today, I just noticed on Rebecca's blog, she is honoring the late Joe Spado as part of Haiku My Heart Fridays. Joe always posted there, so I'm adding this haiku for Joe who built a Day of the Dead altar every year--and the photos I saw were spectacular.

I never met Joe
but loved his words, photos
My post is for you.
