I found this piece of skull in an antique auction house over the summer. A few years ago I did a watercolour/ink painting of a skull with colors very similar to this one. I could come up with a romantic statement about how life prevails over death, and how this painting is a symbol of hope (which may be true). But when it all comes down to it, I just really like painting animal skulls.
