So here is my homage piece to Henri Matisse’s The Dance, except, of course, I substituted skeletons for all the dancers, because that’s what I do! Hope you like it. The original pastel painting is available for purchase ($600). Contact me by email and I’ll set up payment and delivery.

Stay tuned, as soon as I get a nice high res photo of it, I will be offering prints in my shop.
