i really enjoyed this work a lot. i have always enjoyed bones and actually have a cow skull in my studio/office. i like the colors, light and combination of objects. if it is not to personal, where is the place? the planet is almost like a magnifying glass to the sky. great work!!!
Thank you! The "place" is actually the (very wild) seacoast and the mountains of Baja California in the area circled.
The church is nearly on the beach in a tiny fishing village called Santa Rosalilita.
A very rough road goes for 20 miles along the beach - between Guerrero Negro and Sta. Rosalilita - allowing strange and wonderful beachcombing.
I keep a cowskull in my studio too.

thanks for the thorough reply, i love baja and have spent a little time there. i hope to do more of that now that my kids are getting older. i highly recommend strategically placing a mr. and mrs. potatoe head under the skull. it adds so much to my altar area above my work counter. i also have a plush buddha and many other odds and ends scavenged at thrift stores for an eventual office as i am a learning therapist with a passion for sand play therapy. thanks again, i look forward to more of your work and its nice to know that there are a few of us "skull" people around.

I love the colours and all the wonderful objects to explore.
I'm glad you put it in the Alternative/Mixed Media Art Project.
It is a great addition :)
Hope to see more!
