Skellies are what’s inside every body, trying to get out. They caper, dance, and just generally enjoy themselves, no matter where they are. I started painting them one day when I was bored and now there are more than 50 of them. Who knew I had so many skeletons in my closet?
They make me laugh and feel just a bit naughty. They can do all the things I secretly wish to do because the worst that can happen to them already has—they’re dead!
Old (Dead) Masters series
The Old (Dead) Masters series is for the serious, or maybe not so serious, student of fine art. How many original works of art can you identify from these skeletonized versions?
Greetings from St. Augustine series
Greetings from St. Augustine series features skeletons capering on and around tourist attractions in St. Augustine, Florida. They’re enjoying themselves while seeing the sights in the nation’s oldest city. Surfing, pirating, checking out the Fountain of Youth or the Castillo de San Marcos, they’re having a fabulous time and wishing you were here.
Skelly Dancers series
Skelly Dancers are just chilling at the beach! The first 5 skellies I ever painted are in this group.
Just for fun series
The Just for Fun series are skeletons that don’t fit any of my other categories. They include shrimp boat captains, motorcycle riders and romantic skellies, among others. I’m always open to suggestions for new skellies to add to this group, so please contact me if you have something special in mind!
