trickster, coyote skull. $160 including shipping.
Coyote skull totem, the skull was reclaimed from a road strike.
Cleaned, degreased, sanitized, painted, and stained with oil pigments and mounted on burgundy felt in a light ornate frame, with cicada shells from the Ozarks, tiny birch cones, feathers, deer knuckles, and possum toe bones.
Frame is just over 8×11″, skull stands out about three inches from it. Ready to hang, signed on the back by the artist.
He had a very dry, kind energy to him. I could tell this animal had led a charmed life (until the end) and felt better putting a warm color in this piece. The other animal bones in this piece were collected right alongside him, under some plum trees by the blue highway here.
I feel that he may have been a humorous and crafty animal. I hope I’ve done well by him.
Piece is backed with heavy paper and will ship well-protected in much packaging, price includes tracking and insurance- no international shipping on this guy, sorry. US only.

turkey skull mount, $130 including shipping
turkey skull shadowbox assemblage with objects: driftwood, human molar, found feathers, and pebbles, about 6×9″ and 3″ deep, oil paint and bone glue used in construction.
Where I live, wild turkey abound. This skull came from a hunting neighbor- they ate the turkey, but would have discarded its skull. The molar came from a dear friend of mine who had many teeth removed all at once.
The feathers come from a neighbor’s chicken run, and the pebbles and driftwood I collected at Ona Beach on the Oregon coast, west of my home. The seedpods and nut husks were collected in the southeastern US, while I was traveling.
The snail shells were collected at Marys Peak, Oregon, and the single bone on top is from a household pet- a cat, who died of age. The human molar belonged to a friend and has been sanitized.
All items have been cleaned, degreased, sealed and sanitized, then stained or dyed before inclusion in this box.
cost includes packaging, shipping with tracking and insurance.
Insurance and delicate packaging to ensure safe arrival are included in the cost of shipping. I cannot ship this internationally due to import/export laws, sorry.

I’m still not quite sure how I feel about working so small. I do like the idea of people without a lot of spare cash being able to own my art, though. So with a little nudge from some friends, I decided to paint a few.
I had done a few mini deer paintings before, but these are the first tiny tattoo art paintings I’ve done.
Do you paint mini-size, or ACEOs? What’s been your experience with them? I find it really hard, because for things like this I usually use a round nib on an ink-dip pen, and had to use such a tiny nib- also I am accustomed to doing BIG soft washes, so switching down to tiny-brush-size felt a bit odd too.
I suppose I will wait and see how much people want them too, before I make up my mind!

I worked on this today, with help from Hawkins.
It’s a commission for a friend; I was working on it before but they asked me to build a mount for them, and finishing this ended up fitting their concept perfectly. (I do have some things like this for sale, go here to buy those, or see them.)
All that’s left to do is seal it.
Pig skull, deer and coyote jaws, deer, dog, and badger bones- medical-grade gauze circa 1943, and oil paint.
I used bone glue, hot glue, twine, and adhesive plaster to construct it, and to make the joints solid.
It’s mounted on a square piece of maple plywood. It has taken me a few days of solid effort, and a few weeks of concept/articulation research, to make this one. Hawkins helped assort and assemble the structure – having his mind on the project was extremely helpful.
More images after the jump.
