A Gift to Paint

I have been having a blast the last week or so.  A friend gave me a the coolest gift;  a bleached deer skull!  Yep he is a hunter, and gave me this to paint.  Thought I would share some of the work I have done so far....
Today I did a study in ink and acrylic, plan to work this one up later in oil:
Ink and acrylic on paper,

Here are a few more..........Can you tell I am aging FUN :)
   The following are available on my Fine Art America website as prints.

This one is on Zazzle;

Anyways just wanted to share, hope you enjoyed seeing what I have been up to, now back to my brushes :)


  1. When you wrote that you had a skull to paint I thought at first that you were going to paint ON the skull. Imagine my relief when I saw that you are using it as a model - I really like the second painting - it has attitude.

    1. Thanks Mellowood Gallery. When I was given the skull, (which is very dry and fragile) I was afraid that was what my friend wanted me to do, so you can imagine my relief when he said no just have some fun with it.
