Sugar Skull Altar #4 - "Take the time. [The flowers are temporary and so are we.]"
Sugar Skull Altar - #4 - "Take the time. [The flowers are temporary and so are we.]" - 8" x 8" x .75"
Inspired by the saying to remember to stop and smell the roses. As we age, time seems to speed up. This piece is a reminder to take time out to enjoy the little things.
The following words are around the edges:
"Have no regrets."
"Relax. Enjoy the beauty of life."
"Don't wait to fulfill your dreams."
"Live in the present. Don't look back."
My mixed media series of mini altars represents many of my internal desires, affinities, personal growth direction, and life goals.
I am currently experiencing a great deal of change personally and professionally. I chose to incorporate sugar skulls as a way to focus on personal reflection, as well as a symbol to look forward to positivity and transformation.
For me, the sugar skulls represent facets of my spirituality and personality, and are not intended to be associated with any organized religion. They also represent reflection on the past and allow me to invite new experiences.
