Skeleton in the closet (under painting)

Max officially started day care on Monday (he'll be going two days a week) that means two days in the studio to get cracking on some oils. I layed in an under painting of this really cool skeleton key. I placed it in a shadow box and adjusted the light source to add interest to the composition.

I've admitted before that I don't really enjoy naming paintings but I like this working title so far.."Skeleton in the closet".

How could you NOT use that title? It's perfect!

This has a real N. C. Wyeth feel to it, somehow. Like it could be a spot illustration at the beginning of a chapter of some great mystery/adventure story!

Can't wait to see how you finish it up, Todd!

Thanks Liz,

N.C...I'm not worthy but thanks. Hope to wrap this one up on Friday.
Best to you,

Good luck with the little bit of extra painting time.
