Experiments in gold leaf

Oof!  My exhibition at Oriel Ynys Mon (click here) on Anglesey still has a month to run.  It’s been hard work, as pictures sell off the walls to all the tourists who pass through there, so I’ve been painting like mad to fill the gaps.  Here are some new pictures.  I’ve been experimenting with ‘icons’, which are hinged – they have found materials, drawings of skulls, random (relevant) pictures on the front, and a ‘surprise’ painting with gold leaf inside – a bird icon!  Difficult to convey in pictures, so you have to imagine that you’re seeing the front and inside together…



Razorbill, not hinged!
