Nance here. Very cute and cool! I have skulls throughout my house. One special one gets a Santa hat in December every year.

Fun tricksy treatsy girl! Yay!

I love EVERYTHING about skulls nance! There was this PC game I played once Grim Fandango - about skull people who looked like day of the dead. I need to paint skull people.

Cute, cute, cute. I like her little kitten face. ;) Skulls are fascinating. The history behind what people do with them gives a new meaning to respecting the dead.

I forget which but a culture somewhere, tibet? takes the skulls (after cremation?) and writes on them. the persons name. gave me the idea of writing poetry on my beloveds head. beautiful yet so creepy.

Suzi....if you love skulls you have to see this. When I lived in Italy, I visited the Capuchin Crypt in Rome. You can read about it and see the beautiful artwork created with real skulls at this website:

It was so creepy but a beautiful way to celebrate the lives of the 4,000 monks!
Anyways...I love this painting!

Ha! Every good girl has, of course, a dark side! Beware! lol :) Great piece

Unichorn said...

Ah, wait, the theme of the assignment is 'tricks or treats'... heh, uhm, to correct: every good girl can dress as a bad one at Halloween!

Diane Duda said...

She is just beautiful, Suzi!

Dave said...

Suzi, something weird is going on--well, it is Halloween week after all. I know I left you a Trick or Treat on Saturday night, but now I don't see it. Either I'm losing my mind or the ghosties are coming out a little early. Anyway, Trick or Treat and please send me your address to suscleve@aol.com so I can send you your treat.

Really cute, as all your work!
I´m very grateful to you. Seeing your videos and drawings I felt like making hand made drawings again. So... now I have a new Moleskine and I´m drawing!
Thanks a lot!
