"Disciplined activity and hieghtened sensativity can reveal a spiritual path for the artist which can lead to a private spring of magic waters".- Richard Newman
I have been working on a Mixed Media still life but made the terrible mistake to glue some patches of burlap. It wouldn't have been so bad if it were an abstract piece but in this case it was to heavy for realism. I pulled it off and now have covered the whole pìece with gold leaf to paint the same still life over it. I like the background but the painting does not stand out enough yet, so I will continue to add on colors until it shows, against the gold leaf.
Another two of the scavenger hunt list, my hand and some buttons, so I will post this until I can finish my painting.
