Dia De Los Muertos

We managed to get to the Dia de Los Muertos altars in the Mission.  We stayed until it got dark and then I made a special feather for Sadie for this amazing sculpture. The pastels glowed gorgeously on the matte black paper.    There were hundreds of people creating so many beautiful feathers to add to the bird.  We didn't get a chance to go back and see the sculpture after it was filled with feathers but it was getting there quickly. The pictures don't do it justice because you can't really tell the scale but it was a lot bigger than it looks in the photo.  This was definitely my favorite altar; what a brilliant idea!
