Peaceful Skull

Simon Vine of Auckland, New Zealand sends us cheers and this detail of a skull from a painting he has done.

I love how simple yet detailed your painting is. The lack of bold outlines helps to soften the bony structure and making it seem like a warmer, gentler portrait of ultimate demise. Cheers to you, Simon for the skeleton who seems to have met a peaceful fate. Does anyone want to share a story on this skeleton's final happy days? Maybe it dies in it's sleep....or something better?
