Sugar Skull Painting

Finished this small painting today. I love Mexican sugar skulls and day of the dead art. This is a mixed-media painting of a sugar skull.

Mixed-Media Painting

I finally finished this painting I started a few months back. It evolved and changed quite a bit during its creation. The final product is vastly different from the majority of my work. Mixed-media including paint, UTTE, nails and wire on wood panel.  for a peek at what it looked like before evolving into this, see the original post here

Filled Journal

I"ve filled another journal. Will be trying to get photos of all pages posted within the next few days. The photo with the skull in it is my journal cover. The cover was made from an old (and largely crappy) painting I had done on canvas paper. The outside of the cover is the backside of the canvas paper and the inside is the actual painting. But cutting it apart from the rest of the painting totally changed the look of it and made it far less crappy! I love being able to take something I made and wasn't thrilled with and re-purposing it into something I actually like.
