A Little Luck and a Good Idea

A Little Luck and a Good Idea
20" x 16"
oil on panel
We all would like a little extra luck sometimes.
Especially when we think we have good ideas.
I think it all goes hand in hand with a lot of hard work.
All the props in this painting have deep meaning to me. 
The light bulb for the good idea.
The wish bone for a little luck.
The skull is us.
The marbles are our thoughts.
The feather is flight, so those good ideas can 
take flight with a little luck.
I thought I would share some in-progress shots
from the painting:
The skull is from the Visible Man Anatomy kit.
It is only 2" tall. The light bulb is an appliance
bulb, so it is also fairly small in scale.
