SEAWALL WITH PINES
OIL ON GOLD LEAF 12 X 16
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.
AN EXAMINATION OF SUNLIGHT ON CYPRESS
OIL 24 X 20
The latest work to be added to a private collection is this Tuscan landscape, called “An Examination of Sunlight on Cypress”
The piece has been with Camilla Richman’s Fine Art in Osterville, MA. Through her it has been sold to a private collector on the Cape, and I am thrilled that my work has found a new audience.
This landscape has long been one of my favorites. The cypress, olives and fading horizon, all evoke a landscape that is timeless.
