I haven’t taken much time lately to create personal artworks for myself, so it was really creatively therapeutic to be in nature and away from the city this weekend at my parents’ house, playing outside and arranging flowers with dead animals. A few months back my dogs killed a skunk, and my mom being as strange as I am, kept the carcass for me near her garden. After leaving it to naturally decompose for a while, I went out to scavenge what was left. Unfortunately a lot of the little bones had been carried off by other critters (such is nature running its course I guess), but I was thankful to find this perfect little skull with all its pearly teeth still in tact waiting for me atop the pile of fur and earth.
In a week or so, I’ll post a walkthrough on how I go about processing and cleaning bones. Stay tuned! If you aren’t already, make sure to follow my blog on Bloglovin so you don’t miss my new posts!
