This piece is another experiment with oil paints and gold leafing. It was created by beginning with an oil painted base, then adding gold leafing details, and finally finishing with more oil painted details. The purple veins in the painting guide your eye throughout the piece. The gold leafing has beautiful details when seen close up. The painting is titled “Leaf” because of the abstract resemblance to tree leaves of various kinds. It follows the “Stroh” paintings as a seconded in the Abstract Oil Painting series.
