11 x 14 inch canvas with a 3 inch black and brown ornate frame. It is a mixed media piece consisting of gesso, gold leafing, and lace fabric. Completed September 27, 2012.
This painting is originally an experiment painting lace fabric and gold leafing. As the painting evolved, it took a beautiful organic vine structure within the gold leafing of the lace elements. I added complementing black lace shapes on the top layer to even out the gold leafing. As of now I will be including this in the Study of Fabric collection since it was an experiment with Lace Fabric, but as time goes I may create a whole Lace Fabric collection since it turned out so well.
