A month of skulls

One month ago I began painting the second layer of the row of skulls across the floor of the Angel of Death painting. Tonight I finally put down the final touches on the last of them, pulling back my chair to have a long, mostly satisfied look at what I’ve done. Most of the work looks pretty good, but there are a few problems here and there which are going to have to be fixed, big time. I can’t allow them to rest in the state they’re in right now, but tonight I’m going to go to a bar and have a glass of champagne, and maybe smoke a Romeo y Julieta cigar to celebrate the conclusion of this stage of the painting.
