Day of the Dead Mural

Every year we put together an ofrenda for Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos.  An ofrenda is a shrine we build to honor friends and relatives (and, in Bosque style, altering the traditions a bit to include pets, body parts, or whatever else seems right).  This year Margret painted a mural on the Casita to serve as a backdrop to our annual ofrendas and a real piece of art to admire for the rest of the year.

She started by repairing a crack in the wall with cement:

Below Dennise, Margret, and Forest are working hard to get the mural ready for Day of the Dead:

Thanks to Margret, who volunteered here for a month.  Amazing work!
