Though you can't see it in the picture, this entire image is underlaid with gold leaf. The image is a gel medium transfer of a picture I took from Powell Butte. Then I used layers of water soluble oil pastels and gel medium to lay on colors. In the light the gold flashes through the foreground. It doesn't feel quite done yet, but my muses aren't coming through so far. I may add more to it later.
I sure love working with gold leaf . . . probably more to come!
