Acrylic, gesso thickened with hand-crushed rock, marble dust,  genuine gold and misc. g
rit.

    This painting has a low releif structure of gypsum rock that I crushed by hand in the studio. This controls the grit level for exactly the texture I am looking for. The sunset gleams with the reflected light off of genuine gold, while accents of other golds in varied hues and layers create a sense of shifting light. This painting looks great in the sunshine, but on the wall reflecting the light from a flickering candle or a fireplace it seems to come alive.
