More Art This Year Than Last

Life and Death

Another in my random works. The title just seemed right as soon as it was done. The skeleton obviously represents death and so does space, and the flowers and sun represent life. "Life and Death", 9 x 12, Micron pen, Copic marker and Acrylic on Grey toned paper. Original and prints available. Picture 78.
