Well this is a first for me! A customer of mine brought me a "Bear Skull" and ask me to paint a picture of a black bear on it. He had shot the bear on a bow hunt, had the cape made into a rug and had the head boiled to clean it. Although some of my friends might be squeamish about touching a bear skull, I am not. I actually thought it was pretty cool to hold one in my hands and see it up close. My customer was happy with the finished painting and now the bear skull hangs proudly in the living room of his log cabin.
