One of my more scary (add some scary music here… or a good metal band :)) paintings just in time for halloween. I used complimentary colors red and green with a little red orange and green yellow thrown in.

There isn’t a super specific meaning. Thinking what to name it, I noticed the rib cage really looked like a cage and along with most paintings of sculls and bones it represents mortality. I personally believe someday we will be released from our mortal cage. In my humble opinion… we think spiritual therefore we are spiritual beings. Halloween seems to remind us of the spiritual realm.

And even if you don’t agree I hope you enjoy the painting anyway. 🙂
