This is an original oil painting of a skull with a bullet hole in the forehead. This painting was inspired by a skull on display at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. The high contrast between light and shadow accentuates the bullet hole, as well as the form of the skull.

This painting measures 12" x 9" and is framed in a modern, black beveled frame. The finished size of the piece (including frame) is 13-1/2" x 10-1/2".

    I've been following this artist for years at local exhibitions and was so excited when she finally opened an Etsy shop! I purchased three paintings from Sarah; two as Christmas gifts and one for myself. Her paintings are stunning and truly capture the textures of her animal subjects beautifully. Sarah shipped the pieces promptly and included all the hardware for hanging, making it incredibly easy to display. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our skull with mums painting and look forward to seeing Sarah's next inspiration.

    As for the details of the purchase: The mechanics of the purchase went smoothly and as expected. Overall: Don't hesitate to purchase from Sarah. You will be glad you did.

    Beautiful painting! A privilege to own. I can almost "feel" the softness of the fur. The piece I chose is close to as shown online as in person but better... Sarah's portraits are perfect for either the art OR animal lover. Both are well represented.
    It arrived well protected as wrapped and came two days after the shipped date with tracking.
