Hello, I'm Melody Herrera and you guys featured my 25 Days of Window Painting for the month of December last year. It brought so much of the community together and made painting outside in the freezing temperatures completely worth it! This year we're back and I'd like to share my" 31 Days of Halloween Window Painting with Skelly" with you and the City of Odessa. My husband Jacinto and l, set up our 7ft skeletons in different scenes & funny situations daily. They are light in humor and are sometimes based on scenes in popular movies. My husband takes on the skeletons scenes, while I paint a new image on our window daily till Halloween. We have met so many people who share their stories about how they pass by our house daily with their families at night and every morning beforework and school to brighten their days! We have other people who tell us they take pictures to share in the office while at work. We're sometimes approached with request too. It's been such a pleasure to get to know so many people here in Odessa because of something so silly and fun. I have an album on my Facebook page that is for the public. It is Titled: "Skelly and Window Art".The album has all of the days with Skelly from this year. We are now on Day 11. Rain or shine we are always out there to make sure a scene is in place for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for your time and God Bless. Please feel free to contact me here on Facebook or via Text or Email,anytime. 432-310-3212
