and so to bed
87 x 76 cm
acrylic and liquid gold leaf on gessoed board
Painted while I was pregnant with Annabelle. (Must post sketches of her some day, my latest muse, she`s so cute!) In this piece, I experimented for the first time with acrylic texture mediums, and liquid gold leaf. Layers and ridges of paint from an old painting underneath can still be seen in places. I thought it apt to end on this one, since it`s 2 am and I`m exhausted! But the blog`s up and running (thanks to my hubby) and I`ve uploaded loads of images. I would have preferred to have been able to separate my two styles (probably a marketing nightmare) and I should have posted everything in a more chronologically coherent manner, but I`m a technological disaster, so if I ever get round to doing a web page, someone else is doing it. So, now I will endeavour to post images once every couple of weeks or so. (Remember, I`ve got 3 kids and one is a baby), and it`s 2am and I`m still breastfeeding, and I must be crazy!!
¡¡A la cama, ahora!!
