Painted Skull (art)

Deer Skull #1


This is the first skull I painted.  A whitetail buck deer skull I found beside a country road.  Most likely it was hit and killed by a car.

I love skulls, bones, natural specimens. 

I often use stones, shells, nests, twigs, seedpods, leaves, and flowers to decorate my space.  I see endless layers of beauty in nature.  I feel no desire to run to Target to feather my nest.

I was inspired to paint on this skull and it started something new for me.  Using the nature I love as a canvas. By my hands, I added my touch with acrylic paint.

I still have this skull.  I don’t consider it my best work.  But it was the beginning of skull painting.  That makes it special to me.
