Skull Paintings

I'm working on a group of skull paintings, I have been for some time now, and now I feel I can begin to show a few of them on the blog. These little bitty portrait skulls are all 3.5" x 2", so they are wee miniature skulls done with unbleached titanium white, white, and raw umber. I work with a range of plastic skulls and reference images, but mostly I consider these to be playful portrait/still life ciphers. I hope they smirk at you even as I make rows of them.
