Winding colors weave through this painting of California wine country. The mosaic colors combine to form a painting filled with texture and a stained-glass-like effect.

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.
