Above is the final shot of the painting, and below is when it was finished in black and white. If you scroll down, you can see the earlier progress shots of the painting.

The skull that the falcons are perched on is that of an owl, and the flowers are Saint John's Wort, which symbolizes protection.

This was only my second painting in color, and let's just say that I had some issues with it along the way. That's why I didn't take more pictures while the color was evolving. Those damn flowers were going to be the death of me!

Anyways, I'm really happy with the way it turned out and glad that I made all the changes I wanted to to it, even though it aggravated the hell out of me!
