If you're dying to support the arts, an artist in Tempe, AZ
would love to hear from you. Especially if you have
some ashes of a beloved family member you can spare.
Daniel Ortega is an artist who specializes in ashwork,
a medium that mixes "cremains", or cremated remains
with stone, plants and dirt to create one-of-a-kind black
and white or color works of art.
So far, most of Ortega's paintings have mostly used the
cremains from dogs or cats, but now he wants to branch
out and use human cremains.
