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.

My post on thursday gave me the incentive to create this piece. It has taken me every waking hour to get this far. Created with sterling silver leaf, which catches the light in a most spectacular way. Still have more to do … I’m hoping to have it ready for my next show on Saturday June 9th. {Show dates and places.}
