The Calaveras project was a way for me to see what I could do with the extra time between things. 'Extra time' is sort of a misnomer, however, these 36 skulls could be thought of as an exercise in time management. I would often do a painting right before work or right before bed. With every painting, I limited myself to only 30 minutes. Once the timer went off, I was done....whether I was done or not.
