This watercolor depicts a whimsical couple — a woman and a skeleton — engaged in intimate conversation.
Its vibrant red background contrasts dramatically with the cheerful skeleton’s white bones and black shadows. At left, free brushstrokes of flowing, earthy paint create the woman’s tumbling long hair; the same colors carry over into her face, especially her sensual lips, poised to kiss her partner.

More About The Painting
This unusual take on “true love” harmonizes well with the astrological sign Libra. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, Libra is associated with relationships—especially partnerships and marriage. In addition to its role regarding relationships between “self” and “other,” Libra can be seen as an energy allowing us to explore the personal relationship existing between the outer and inner self.
In addition, we have an opportunity during the Sun’s time in Libra to contemplate our relationship to the self over time: at left is a woman of flesh and blood who lives on the material plane, and at right is the skeleton she will one day become, when she departs the earthly realm and returns to the spiritual realm. Through Libra, we can learn to love “otherness” in ourselves and to appreciate our personal expression in all phases, on all planes.
This painting also is excellent for Scorpios, given it crimson background, the black on the skeleton, and the unusual subject matter associated with the soul, depth, and death. It also carries strong associations with Halloween and All Souls Day because of its subject and colors, and its whimsical take on the skeleton, the afterlife, and “issues of life and death” also give it a strong link to The Day of the Dead.
