Marie Marfia, Bone to be Wild, soft pastel on gessoed gator board, 20x16"

Just for Fun series

It started out innocently enough

I began with a series of five skeletons dancing on the beach, and was surprised and pleased by how popular they were. Before I knew it, I’d done over fifty skellies, and there are bound to be more. I can feel it in my bones!

Skellies have a life of their own

I love painting skeletons because they’re fearless, fun-loving and free! Bonus, they make me laugh! I guess I’ll just have to keep on painting them.
