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.
