The Sky Puts On a Crown

one of a kind
media: oil, paper

$1,800 - h: 22" x w: 19" - original

Oil with gilded surface on patterned, prepared paper. Matted with archival mat, not framed. Matted size is 27x24, center image 12 diameter.

This work was created as a conversation between the pattern on the paper (the branching of a tree canopy) and the painting done on the gilded central circle. The gilding is 12k gold it gives the work a dynamic quality. The idea of the sky wearing a crown is playful, but equally imaginative when considering the relationship of sky and vegetation. The central image is drawn in copper gilding and depicts the blossom of a Christmas cactus plant.
