Mosaic Monday / Dead Artists, Skulls and more

Me & Dan as Frida Kahlo & Vincent Van Gogh

It is that time of year.... Halloween and yes Halloween parties. This weekend we went to the Creative Arts Center Halloween party. We won best costume for the group category, we also had a pal with us that was Bob Ross (the guy that paints little trees). I don't know why we wanted to be such tortured artists. We are both pretty happy individuals, at least Bob was there to add some levity with his big brown afro. At any rate it was fun trying on these characters from 3 totally different eras.

If you need some help getting in the holiday mood go on over to the Skull A Day Blog and search for Skull Mosaics. You will find some pretty cool stuff.
