About Bone to be Wild

Part of my Just for Fun series, Bone to be Wild is a pastel painting of a motorcycle skellies cruising through the surf off the coast of Florida. I love skeletons and St. Augustine, Florida, so I did a series of paintings featuring tourists and famous St. Augustine landmarks featuring skeletons, of course!

Just for Fun series

The Just for Fun series are skeletons that don’t fit any particular mold. They include shrimp boat captains, motorcycle riders and skellies in a romantic frame of mind. I’m always looking for suggestions for new skellies to add to this group, so please contact me if you have an idea for a  new skelly painting!

About skellies

I love skellies because they’re fearless and free. When painting them I find that they take on a life of their own! If they make you laugh, then I feel my job is done. Life is short! Skellies are forever!


Pastels are my medium of choice because they’re so versatile and immediate. I love the way the light refracts when it hits the chalk. I love all the different marks you can make with them. This piece was done on Canson mi-teintes paper, using various brands of pastels.
