This is really something different for me!!!

What I love about this time of year is that I have the time to experiment with different kinds of paintings. My husband is a very active hunting enthusiast.  So, last weekend we visited a skull mount taxidermist. While, my daughter Autumn was picking up her mount. I wondered around a bit.  I found it very interesting seeing all the skulls there lined up together by species. It was just amazing to me to see how alike they were but, at the same time so different and intricate. Each hole and curve of the bone has a reason. Once again, the organic line is hard at work everywhere. I created this little piece to remember my day.

cool idea...I love the O'Keefe pieces that incorporated cow skulls...did you have to treat the bone or just paint right on it...just is amazing the things one can paint on.

It was cleaned and bleached already. I just put a primer down where I was going to paint it. I thought it was a lot better just to leave the rest of the bone natural. I will finish it with a sealer.
I really love the the way that it just sits up so nicely, like it was meant to be displayed.
The whole time I was at the taxidermist I kept thinking of Georgia O'Keefe. I wanted to paint one with just roses but, my hubby wanted to see a wildlife piece.
