My First


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’ve always loved skulls and bones.  All natural specimens, bits, and pieces.  Rocks, shells, nests, twigs, seedpods leaves, and on and on.  Endless layers of beauty exist in nature.

I was inspired to paint on this skull and it started something new for me.  Using the nature I love as a canvas.  Joining these remains to myself using paint applied from brushes held by my hands and moved by my soul.

I still have this little skull.  I don’t think of it as my best work.  But it was the beginning into this creative avenue.  That makes it special to me.
