New Uses for an Old Skull

September 5, 2011

Now that it is September I am already looking forward to Halloween, my favorite time of year. I’ve been making good use of that resin skull I purchased last year by incorporating it into some new paintings. The first one  I finished is a still life. The second which is still in progress, alas, does not have the skull but features a disembodied hand  that usually sits on my hearth and a vintage doll head. The third is so far an underpainting and has the whole skeleton holding his own head in his hand; a theme I used successfully with my dog Bingo in his “Sleepy Hollow” halloween card a few years back.

    Love the new still life, especially the flock wallpaper and the expression on the face of the mouse. Can’t wait to see what else you are preparing for Halloween – the recent puppet portraits really scared me 🙂
