Copper Studies: Experiment with Leaf

This work is a purely abstract collection in which copper leaf is experimentally broken and smoothed over sanded wood. The copper layer is then engraved using a metal tool to create designs. Next, Acrylic paint is applied in thick or thin coats, vibrant and layered. A protective varnish is applied to preserve the fine copper bits flashing through the colors. *Artwork still for sale is indicated by an (*).
