Day 14

 It is a glorious fall day here. We had our first rain last night in about 85 days! Decided to play with some gold leaf inspired by the leaves starting to change. Also got another small face done waiting for the gold leaf glue to dry...

This face was so bad when I started that I could not even bear to show it. I collaged over the bad parts and repainted it, added the gold leaf. Not sure if it is hair or back lighting, but it is pretty and really hard to photograph...I love how the text I used showed through enough to see the words "what I see" The painting just named itself!

  4. I think this piece is especially beautiful - and shows how something rich and full can come from struggle.
    Thank you for posting it.
