Memento Mori, A Mixed Media Painting

On my easel right now is this painting, in its final stages, that I’ve named Memento Mori, which means remember death. It’s got a sort of fiery palette with reds, yellows, browns, and orange. I’ve embedded some numbers and used tissue paper to add texture. At the bottom are three rows of skulls.
