Pastel painting of a skeleton couple dancing at an outdoor cafe.

Skelly Dance at Bougival

24×12″ pastel on Canson mi teintes paper

In this painting, a skeleton couple dances at an outdoor cafe. They’re so in love, dead to the world, these two! This is based on the classic Auguste Renoir painting, Dance at Bougival. and is part of my skelly series, Old (Dead) Masters, in which I re-work some of my favorite historical paintings with calcified, bone-ified results!
