I am happy to be spending a bit more time on this piece that I started prior to leaving for my residency in Haida Gwaii. Working with gold leaf and oil is like nothing I’ve ever done previously, and I’m learning and exploring as I work on this. The very interesting thing is that no matter where you are in relationship to the painting, it changes according to the reflection of the light source. That can never be reproduced with a photograph, unfortunately.
I’ll post more as the image progresses.
