Art: Batty Friends by Artist Misty Monster (Benson)
Oh my! Look what this bat has nestled against his chest -- a skelly!! Look closely at your batty friends! You might just see a skeletal being peering back at you!

I am so happy to have a work of art for this show! I love bats, bats, bats! I look for them at night, I love seeing images of them. One day, I'd love to have a bat sanctuary!

For this show, I submitted "Batty Friends", done in acrylic paints on a 5x7 sheet of canvas. I like to make most of my skelly pieces small and collectible. I like to think of my skellies not being much bigger than the size of my hand. For this piece, I chose the fruit bat. They have such warm, rich coloring, and they have such a distinctive wing structure when they hang. I decided to show a little skelly cuddling up to his batty friend on a cold night. If you look closely, you can see the skelly's feet are holding this due to the branch, so at least he's doing some of the work!
