"French Vase with Green Apple," by Alicia Tredway

Although it's hard to see in the photograph, I was playing around with gold leaf in a few areas.  I'm told I would need two photographs merged with filters etc. and since it's only 6 x 6 I thought better of it.  I've had the gold leaf practically my whole painting career but this is the first time I've actually used it.  It's so thin a special natural hair brush is used to lift and manipulate it (friction) and it's adhered with gel medium which is actually a glue.  Painting is at auction DailyPaintWorks. go here
