Well, I've been quite busy the past few months--thus no blogging. But here I am once again. I recently finished a big project I've been working on and once I've got the frame (it makes the painting) I'll get it out here for all to see. The painting that took all my time involved a lot of gold leafing. So to figure out how to work with the stuff I gold leafed the background of the painting below. Originally, I had planned to paint over the gold leaf but once I painted the portrait I liked it so much I kept it.
It has inspired a new series of paintings I'm working on so watch for them to come...
