The second skull is now finished! Personally, I’m happy with it, but it needs something else……. maybe a crow or a spider for his head! But searching through Michael’s, and not finding a crow didn’t help. Todays skull started late in the day, and really I have no idea where I was going to find my inspiration! Again, Google wasn’t helping, but once the painting started, the skull slowly seemed to take on a life of its own, and before I knew what was happening, this is what happened…
My studio gave birth to a Male Skull! That certainly was not my intention, the flowers were on my table, all the colors that not only went with orange, but the colors that clashed with orange were set in place waiting their turn! The jewels were even out, and waiting to go! How could this happen? I didn’t seem to have any control, a mustache appeared before my very eyes! One thing led to another, and a spider web appeared on his head! Oh boy, this is out of control, what do I do now? Certainly the paint brush was being held by me, and clearly the right brain had kicked in, because I wasn’t even thinking about what was going on. You probably have had the same experience when creating your art, things just have a way of working themselves out! That intuitive/right brain/mixed media thing was happening again! This is a good thing!
All in all, the second skull was much easier to create than the first, probably because I had zoned out for the process! But maybe it was also because the second skull wasn’t as intricate. Either way, the third one is next…….
