Golden Mist
Golden Mist
oil on linen with 23k gold leaf

This painting started out on a strong note, but ended softly. I so enjoyed painting the pastel colors that glow on the canvas. They are soothing to paint and seem almost edible like a rich creamy pudding. The gold is for the most part hidden behind the paint, peeking through the scratched surfaces in little flickers, thus creating an additional light affect.
