Sneak Peek

Medium: Oil, Gold leaf, Resin
Dimension: 12" x 30"

These paintings are one of my newest creations. There are four at this point, two more are in the works. Incorporating the oil, gold leaf, and resin has given the oil paint a look I have never achieved before. The high gloss lacquer finish gives these pieces an edge that makes the work pristine. The gold leaf acts like a piece of jewelry. I messed up one of my favorite ones by of course overworking a piece yet again. (I tend to do that often)... It's amazing what you can do when you first have the idea to do it, and then get obsessed with that idea and make it happen. I love these new ones, and this is just a little sneak peek towards what is to come soon.
