DescriptionThis Skeleton musician remembers another in this musical tribute. You can almost hear the horn. I did this piece to honor a good man and good father, Raymond Saucedo Jr. who went to Heaven too early. His goodness however, lives on. I have experienced him as a very protective angel when I became a Mother. I became involved in creating Day of the Dead paintings when I lost the majority of my immediate and extended family members as a young woman. Their memory empowers me as I continue to marvel at the staying power of love and spirit as we pass that on just as surely as we pass on genetic traits.
