The latest news is that I was a finalist in The Artist’s Magazine Annual Art Competition.
Not too shabby, as it is a national competition with gazillions of entries!!! It is so rewarding to have such positive reenforcement at that level.
The piece that was recognized is, “The Pumpkin Patch”. Done last year in oil on gold leaf, it is a view of the pumpkin patch along Nod Road in Simsbury, CT. I have always loved the tree that stands sentinel over the field, and this wide view of the tree in all the glorious array of autumn, is especially effective with the gold leaf giving it a glow through the paint.
The work is in a private collection, but keep checking the website for further gold leaf pieces under “New Work” or “Oil on Metal Leaf”
p.s. If you click on the image you will get an enlarged view of the piece.
