This is a painting that I have been working on for quite a while, and it is coming to completion. It has gone through my transformations. The painting was originally a maquette for a mural. However, as soon as I got off the plane the client told me he wanted to scrap the idea of dancing bears, and do clouds. Okaaayyy… Although, I agreed with his decision, and the final mural was quite breathtaking it still threw me for a loop, and I needed to start all over. It also left us with a 3′X 4′ painting that was not going where we needed it to go. So, I decided to cover the painting in gold leaf, and start over. I kept seeing a winter scene, but a golden sky, and gold undulating through the whole painting. So here it is. Enjoy!
