Crystal light filters through the oaks and grasses, splintering into a magnificent array of color. The texture of the oil paint jumps from the surface of the canvas, creating motion and depth within the painting.

This original oil painting was created over an application of 24 karat gold leaf. The genuine gold glints through the layers of oil paint, catching the light in a subtle and surprising manner.

The painting was created on 3/4" canvas and comes framed a 6" polished wooden frame. Additional photos are available upon request.
