Happy New Year!

oil and gold leaf on canvas, framed
30.5 x 30.5 
Wishing you a New Year that is filled with good things, full of happiness and hope, prosperity and passion! 

This painting says to me what I hope for our future: simplicity and beauty, a feeling of renewed strength and optimism. 

"Magnolias" is mixed media, with oil paint and gold leaf. Painted on the sides, too, it is framed in a shadow-box frame with a (hand done) gold leaf border, so that the frame and painting are one.

This painting can be seen in my Gallery at The Daily Paintworks along with many others.
