new bones

I'm working on a new commission for a doctor friend of mine. Those doctors, they like the bones. This doctor, in particular, requested the following vertebrae:

first cervical (atlas)

6th cervical

7th thoracic

4th lumbar

I can see why he chose them... isn't it amazing how different they all are? They'll be arranged horizontally, on four separate canvases, like this:

Here is the first layer of paint:

I love yellow ochre and gray.

I have no idea what's happening next, but sometimes that's the most liberating position to be in.
