Still Life Skulls

"Hi there!", writes Jessica Geist in Charlottesville, "Just heard about your project from a mutual friend and I love it! My dad and I have always taken home and cleaned up animal skulls that we find on hikes. Attached is a still life I did in oil stick and oil pastel featuring a small part of our collection (and some other natural souvenirs)."

Wonderful work, Jessica. The soft colors make the skulls seem very passive as if the animals died a natural death, like we hope they did. Kudos for bringing them back to life for us!
