This original oil on canvas painting is a part of my skull bones series. I was inspired to paint the sphenoid bones years ago, when I first saw the beautiful, minute detail of the bone and learned its fascinating structural importance: it is part of the bony orbit, helps to hold out the three dimensional structure of the face, gently cradles the pituitary gland in its "Turkish Saddle" (the Sella Tursica), among other things. I hoped to pay homage to this bone with the bold color palette and striking composition. This oil on canvas painting will come varnished and framed in a lovely gold floating canvas frame.
