I created this Skull & Flower lesson in mixed media as a guest teacher for Kara Bullock’s 2016 Creatures Among Us course. In this lesson, I will share with you my process of layering patterned papers and using acrylic paints to create the background, skull and flower.
This piece was inspired by Georgia O’Keefe as well as my love for the southwest. According to the O’Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, “Georgia O’Keeffe is one of the most significant and intriguing artists of the twentieth century, known internationally for her boldly innovative art. Her distinct flowers, dramatic cityscapes, glowing landscapes, and images of bones against the stark desert sky are iconic and original contributions to American Modernism”.
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” – Georgia O’Keefe
