IF: resolutions / happy skull

Something different this week. A skull, painted for a friend who collects day of the dead items. I am not too thrilled with it right now however...but then I have been looking at it all day perhaps tomorrow I will feel differently.

Before making a resolution some reflection is necessary.
The honest appraisal of the of the past requires an acceptance of human imperfection and frailty.


  1. My favorite part is the skull in the reflection... Looks like he's mimicking and making fun of the main skull. Having more fun than him anyways...
    It's the simplicity of shapes that I like.

  2. another great pallette. very nice, Alice.

  3. The interplay of color is really nice, Alice. I like that your highlights are pink. Also, the textural quality of your brushwork is exciting. More in 2011!
