Mysteries of the Night

While on a trip to Jerome recently, I bought this piece of art. Do you think it's . . . too . . . dark?

SWMBO hates it. I love it. But let's put a little more light on it.

Now, what do you think? I want to hear a vote. Do you like it? Or hate it?

For those of you without Spanish, Dia De Los Muertos translates to Day of the Dead. It's a traditional holiday around the end of October and 1st of November.

And if you think the picture is dark . . . you ought to be in Mexico sometime during those days and see all the sugar skulls for sale in the markets. Or better yet, go to a Mexican cemetery during that time to see people gathering at the graves of their departed relatives, picnicking with all kinds of food and tequila. Rather than mourning the loss, it's a celebration. Not of their deaths but of their lives.
