Van Gogh’s “Skull of a Skeleton with Burning Cigarette”

This piece was done in just 8 hours for the charity art auction ArtCon. It’s a modern twist on a Van Gogh’s satirical ‘Skull with cigarette.’ Who knew Van Gogh had such a wonderful  sense of gallows humor!?

This one was sold for the highest amount they had ever had in their first round (before social lubrication 😉 with over a dozen bids on it in the 8 years they’d been running the charity. Boom!
