Melted? Skull

The land of 1,000 lakes, or better known as Minnesota, is where Valerie Mikelson applies brush to canvas to bring us this 18x24 acrylic painting.


Great skull, Valerie. The blues paints give this piece a chilly feeling. Almost as if we're looking at Iceman's skull. The warmer red colors could possibly represent the heat that finally melted the icy exterior of the super hero. At least that's my view...how do you see it?

A lovely skull.

I think she used the idea of what people might see...as an image of a skull...as a basis, and then opened it up, and turned it into a recognizable object yet somehow conceptual subject.
