Black Lives Matter Catrina

This is a 6 foot Day of the Dead Catrina on paper for the Firehouse Art Gallery in Longmont, Colorado. They have a Catrina painting exhibit every October. I don't usually do political art, and I don't plan to start doing it, but I couldn't help putting in Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland and Tamir Rice into this Day of the Dead painting. It's so good to see people finally talking openly about police killing black people. It has been happening for so long without anyone doing anything about it and it is time for a change.  I am really glad that we are at least talking about it openly now and that is what this painting is about.
