"Too late"

A bit of morbid Alice in Wonderland art here - this little rabbit skull that I dug up in my garden is either going to be my lucky charm or the death of me. Every time I do a painting that includes the skull someone buys it. Now people are starting to ask "when are you going to do more skull drawings?" Which is great, but I can already see myself becoming "that skull girl". I do like drawing bones a lot because of the archaeology angle, so I'm not complaining. More skulls (I mean, more instances of the same skull) coming up soon! I didn't actually use any paint in this one, it's just pencil, pen and ink, and tea.

In other news, I'm currently in Hillcrest visiting my in-laws; it's an extremely beautiful part of the world so I hope I'll manage to get a bit of work done while I'm here. I'm really feeling kloofs, ferns, waterfalls, moss, forests, lots of green. I hope to get to the sea as well before we leave here - I have a steadily growing mermaid obsession that one of these days is going to come out in my art in a big way...
