I told myself I was going to do Illustration Friday this week, but when the topic was "skull," I was disappointed. Anyone who knows me, knows that skulls are not my subject choice. But I am happy I pursued the assignment anyway because I was able to find a way to paint a skull so that I like it. There's a story behind this one. Even if you don't know the story, the painting speaks to me Memento Mori. (Remember you're going to die.) As dark as that seems, it's actually a positive thought that puts priorities in their proper perspective!
