I've collected bones and natural found objects since I was a child. Painting these items conjures a rich tapestry of personal history and reminds me of the transient nature of life. I love the density and color of bones. Bones are neither straight nor perfectly curved. Each is as unique as the life force they once held, shimmering with pearlescent color. Many of these paintings are created from real specimens borrowed from friends or found on walks in the wilderness. I also frequently paint skulls with the Still Death group in Portland, Oregon.
