A Day Of Painting

I am finally painting this guy! This piece has fought me from the get-go. I could see what I wanted in the gourd but the shape wasn't as perfect as I thought, perfect as in proportions. The shape screamed skull and that was sort of easy, ok maybe not!
When I finished SKULpting the face and started on the hat all hell broke loose. The top of the gourd was not rounded for a hat. After fighting with it I pushed him aside.
That was two months ago. He has stared at me with those empty eye sockets for long enough!! It was time for him to become.............
THIS!

He has a new hat, a bow tie and eye balls. I can't wait to see him painted!
Tomorrow you will meet....................................

He may be a troublemaker, but he looks like he is going to be awesome!
I can't wait to meet him!

He is truly extraordinary--he must have come from a very dark and intriguing part of your artistic soul...or he was a total fluke (just ribbin' ya!)

Bet he will have a great personality to go with his good looks!
