If you see me in my daily life, you will likely see me sporting a necklace, earrings, barrette or a scarf with a skull or two on it.
You ask, “Why skulls Bobbi?”
First, I do not like skulls, I love skullies. Most people automatically have this internal click that equates skulls with death. DUH! Let me clarify that I am not fascinated with those types of skulls! That would be just GROSS and CREEPY! Those types of skulls only come out of the Hickman closets at Halloween time.
However, I do love my skullies; the ones that are colorful and girlie like the used on in my blog décor.
Let me also state right now that my house is not decorated in skulls, we do not want to have rumors spread in the neighborhood that The Hickman’s are a cult or witches or something like that!
I simply adore Sugar Skull art. The beauty is all in the bright colors, the happiness in the designs, and the true meaning.
The use of sugar skulls is a symbolization of the Day of the Day which is a Mexican holiday. The day is meant to remind us that life is short, the cycle of life keeps turning, our loving relationships will last a lifetime and the spirits of the dead are always with us.
Here is my painting called "Call her Gladys"
