Kooky Kings!



Just completed these guys, one is destined for my Christmas show, and the other has just been listed in my Etsy shop! They turned out a little crazier than I had envisioned, not sure where they belong, they are their own category I suppose...they look like Mexican Mardi Gras Kings from a strange fairy tale, lol!

I've been listening to "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton on Audible (awesome site, love it!), while I've been painting. It's a fantastic story set in Australia and England during Victorian times, but with dark twists and family secrets. One of the characters writes fairy tales, and I think her wild stories influenced my painted skulls!
