This was inspired by the cow skull next to the painting (obviously) and was painted for Twyla after she asked me “How come you never paint anything for me?!” Hahaha. She had casted this same skull in the past when she ran a foundry and her parents have they metal version of this beautiful artifact. Multiple creations from one inspiration. Acrylic and spray paint on paper. Same technique I’ve been exploring with using only a pallet knife to apply the colors and tones and then using a fine brush and calligraphy ink to do the line work.
