New Skull Series

I'm working on a new painting
that's rather stressful and
decided to paint some more
skulls as a brief diversion from that. 

These almost seem
to paint themselves, and
the fun thing about them
is that they seem to 
be morphing a bit. 

I like seeing their evolution.

In fact, I'm looking at one
of the original skulls I painted
(it's hanging in my art room)
and thinking about how
much I want to sand and repaint it. 

That'll have to wait for later. 

These are the four I completed
this week. 

I've finished 8 so far and my
new goal is 12. 

Some people may find them
scary, but they make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Hoping you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I didn't really understand about 'day of the dead' etc until a couple years ago after reading 'Dusty Diablos' by the assemblage artist Michael DeMeng.
    These are wonderful Terri - cheerful colours and they make me smile.
    I love them all :)
    Have a lovely weekend..
