La Dulce means The Sweet One. The Mexican holiday celebrates the sweetness of life as much as it honors the loved ones we've lost. Every time I complete a new Dia de los Muertos piece, I think of my father, and I think my altar should really have a can of Miller Lite and a couple of beer cozies.
I'll be sharing art and photography paying homage to Hispanic Heritage Month and invite you to join me in celebrating all the pieces that connect you personally to our Latino heritage. First Comes Love prints will be made available upon request. Don't forget to join Melanie Mendez-Gonzales of Que Means What in her #HHM15 photo challenge!
