I'VE developed a series of birdie collages on rag papers; most will fit into an 11 X 14 inch frame. I like doing small works....

As far as the detail in gold is concerned: it's like a little tile. The bird is drawn freehand on copper foil; flipped over (to reveal an embossed drawing) and gilded in 23 carat gold.
It's all assembled with double sided archival tape. Voila! A rich, small work for other near-sighted folk.

I'll put this on my studio website on the GOLD BIRD VARIATIONS page..
