Oil on paper: "WAVES"

Oil on papered panels
with 23 carat gold on copper.

The wet oil glazes have been
textured with a wax paper pressing.

11 inches by 13.5 inches

The copper foil
has been pencil-embossed with
freehand waves.
I gild it with 23 carat leaf.

rains yesterday.
Reflected tree shapes
and quiet lagoon.

has evolved over many months.
Parts of it have been ripped away from the edges
and now live in other collages.
I added to it again today with left-over alkyd oils.
The neat thing about oils: slow dry!
I've been adding white to the palette
and made all sorts of grays today.
About 8 X 5 inches on paper.

Oil on canvas panel
16 X 20 inches

We don't see too many sailors on our lagoon.
Jet skis aren't as charming.
