The paint isn’t even dry, but I couldn’t wait to show you all my latest work on gold leaf.
“Seawall with Pines” is a view out over Long Island Sound from Madison, CT.
The effect of painting trees on the gold leaf, is to keep them light and still achieve a sense of solidity. I am doing an entire series of the lives of trees, this being the third. It is a very delicate balance of paint and visible gold leaf that determines the success of each piece.
