$23 – available for purchase on Etsy

When I first got this wooden frame, bound together with black wire, from a secondhand shop, it had a rather tacky looking wooden snowman stapled to the dried grapevine in the center. I carefully extricated Frosty, and put a prairie dog skull found by another artist in its place. I added some painted accents to the skull in browns, copper and gold acrylics, but otherwise left it largely unadorned. It’s a simple but attractive nature-themed piece, ready to hang on a tack or nail on any wall.
