"This piece is an updated painting of a 10 year old concept. I just realized it had been 10 years
since I started painting, and I thought it would be fun to show a side
by side progress of my style and skill using the same concept.
original design was done in late 2008 and it was one of the first times I
had ever attempted to paint. I had only ever worked in graphite and ink
The plants that are surrounding the girl in the painting
are actually succulents called aeoniums. I have a pretty big garden full
of succulents and these are some of my favorite. The original piece was painted around, and inspired by, the
holiday Dia De Los Muertos. My family on my mother’s side are from
Mexico, and I’ve always enjoyed the rich and colorful culture.
This piece really shows that although my style and skill have progressed, I
still pretty much continue to work in the same themes of love, death,
nature, and beauty." - Glenn Arthur
