I titled this piece 'The Gilded Bather' because I used gold leaf to highlight the yellow background - I love how it makes the painting glow. This was painted with a an antique bathhouse in mind. My motivation was to blend a modern mixed media style, with the gold leaf, with an old masters painting style with thin layers.
The painting is painted on canvas board, so framing is optional with this piece.
The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
