a splash of gold :: art

Painted or foiled, there’s no resisting gold {silver or copper too}.  I use a lot of metal leaf in my artwork and will continue to do so until I run out {which isn’t anytime soon — I bought a boat load of every color, a weak and expensive moment while browsing in our local art store for a kneaded eraser}. No matter how often I see shiny metal {S-H-I-N-Y}, I’m always in awe of the many ways it can be creatively used — especially in art.

We’re in love with ACRYLIC CANVAS paintings. Frances Katz of BlueBerry Glitter aced this piece. A unique canvas alternative that I’ve been toying with trying. The only issue is, I would have to apply papier collé and oil without being able to see the art as it is being applied. Unless of course I had a mirror below the acrylic {it would feel like I was upside down and inside out}. A challenge worth trying. BlueBerry Glitter has this process in the bag! This piece is sold but she has a lot of artwork that is truly worth checking out.

It’s time to redo our kitchen and I’m going back and forth on what look to settle on. This interior seems to surface every time I put pencil to paper. Loving the subway tiles. Dark stain on the cabinets. Although we would do our lower cabinets dark wood and the upper cabinets white. Hmmm. Such decisions!
