About Forever Your Gator Girl

I used to live in Florida. I know how those people (well, some of those people) feel about gators! This painting of a Florida gator with a skeleton cowgirl on its back is my homage to the whole Florida thang! I love the sea of grass, the fantastic sunset, the skeleton cowgirl and her noble steed! Hi ho, Gator, away!

See progress pictures for this piece here.

Just for Fun series

The Just for Fun series is a collection of my skelly paintings that are based on suggestions or commissions or just because I can’t turn my brain off when it comes to skeletons! I welcome suggestions and skelly commissions, so you if have an idea for a skeleton painting, please contact me.

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. I used various pastels to create this painting.
