O'Keefe's Bones too (sold)


O'Keefe's Bones too, oil on canvas, 8" X 10", 2008
(sold)

Silvina Day has been really into skulls as of late, and asked if another would ever appear on the blog. Which inspired me to pull a goat skull off the wall and give it another shot. This is the last for a bit...
The paint's still a bit shiny, so I may repost another pic later.

Jason, beautifully done. The blue is just perfect and really makes everything vibrate. Great job!

Gorgeous! This is really a striking piece.
I don't think I can top this...
but I'll have fun trying. ; D

This is spectacular Jason! It reminds me of one of the Eagles album covers. Very well done.

Don,
Thank you!

Silvina,
I'm sure of two things: You can top this, and you'll definitely have fun trying...

Todd,
Thanks! It's funny, I grew up with those album covers in the house, and I hadn't thought of it at all until you mentioned it... but I wonder how much of that childhood infusion influenced the arrangement?

Susie,
Thank you suzyq!

Dan,
Thank you kindly sir.

Pawing through the old bins of paintings...and randomly commenting on this one which is stunning. I love the absoluteness in your colors (?) and the background. Wonderful Jason
