Ghosts at the Clothesline







A photo shoot out under the clothesline this morning, documenting portraits for my upcoming show. I am also getting ready to plant a bed of marigolds from seed, so that they will be at their peak in late October for the exhibit. I will be placing them around the gallery at my niece Michaela's suggestion. Michaela loves Day of the Dead and all its imagery and folklore, and tells me that marigolds bring forth spirits!

These look amazing, Martha!

If you look up the Mexican "Day of the Dead" festival I believe they are the ones that use marigolds near the art-shrines to encourage ancestors to visit them.
