Mixed media on stretched canvas
This is a commissioned piece for a woman I went to grade school with back in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. A long story, too long to go into here. The color palette is a bit different than I've done recently. I've worked in the gold leaf, and even a bit of gauze that is visible upon close inspection. There was a concern of physical weight of the piece, so I didn't go too crazy with texture, trying instead to make what I did put on the canvas, really matter.
