In the Summer of 2011, Craww posted an unusual comment:
“I woke up early this past Sunday, 6am or something. I actually really like getting up early
(apart from the knackered feeling!) and painting. Early mornings are second only to late
nights for painting potential. Anyhoo, there was a chunk of wood idly sat in the Kitchen, so
I decided to give it some skull love. For no other reason than it seemed to need it.”
What was an idle morning project became this magnificent gothic piece. Briefly exploring this
new medium for painting on wood panels, on old drawers and doors, Craww exhibited them
later that year at the George Thornton Art a gallery in Nottingham.
Skull love, gothic beauty, whichever you decide upon, this is a rare original piece
worth waking up early for.
