Skull and Wing Bone Hybrid – Tan and Blue-Green

Skull and bird wing bone hybrid against light blue background. Surreal art by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Halo Five.

It started with a single circle for a halo, then I added another within because it looked a bit more interesting. Then, shit, why not keep extending them out the side? And four more were added.

I’ve always loved shapes, lines, and geometry, but I didn’t foresee the total pivot that would stem from that seemingly minor compositional experiment.

At this point it’s not worth looking at if it doesn’t include major cropping and at least a line or geometric shape or two. I reject reality and substitute abstraction in its place. (At least in art. Maybe not so much if I’m riding in a plane or something.)

This is the fifth of six color variations (numbers four, five, and six of which also having an alternative crop and line layout).
