New Skull Painting #1

New Skull Painting #1, “Black Betty.” Acrylic and mixed media on canvas, 12×12.


I say “new” but I actually started this 4 painting series before I did my 50 Skulls in 50 Days Project. But it wasn’t finished by any means, so it seemed a logical place to go after I finished my 50 paintings and was feeling a little (ok, fine, super) lost. I completed this one about a week ago, which for some reason I wanted to name Black Betty. I was actually planning to scan and upload it right away but my scan and stitch program wasn’t cooperating and I didn’t have enough time to teach myself to do it in Photoshop! So I just gave up and took a photo with my phone. Sometimes, good enough is good enough, right? There are three more of this series in the works! I will post as I complete them.


I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments! And, yes, if you are wondering, that is a metal octopus wearing a hat in her hair. And, no, I have no idea why…I just liked it!
