Distant Memories


This painting is part of a series I made using imitation gold leaf with acrylics and inks. I wanted to give my pieces a feeling of age, a vintage lived in look. Something that has been hanging in your home for many years. Gold leaf was applied first, once dried a protective varnish is added to allow me to paint over the surface. Inks were used in an abstract way to suggest stems and roots, bold, pops of colour was applied to create the wildflower meadow. The light changes the way this piece is viewed, as the reflection enhances the gold and deepens the colour on the canvas. Leaving you with a memory of early morning.
