Skeleton Hand

It’s October so it’s time to do a spooky relief print…. who am I kidding, it’s always time for that on my page. I love me some macabre art

I decided to do a plain skeleton hand, cut off at the wrist. I think it will look cool on a shirt either coming over the shoulder or even possibly as a sunburst or cruciform pattern on the chest. I also see myself putting it around the border of a pillow or scarf. So many uses.
