After yesterday morning's golden beginning, the whole day sparkled. I love autumn — the light, the shadows, the colors and the cooler air.
The gold of the sun remained within me all day inspiring me to use gold in my art. Last night I worked in Christy's pock-et-FULL book. The pocket itself is in shades of gold with gold stamping.
Here's the art that fits into the pocket. I started by building up layers of torn papers; then I sanded away some areas and glazed over it with acrylics, using gold paint applied with a rubber stamp and gold paint along with the edges.
The words are excerpted from a poem by Alfred Tennyson.
I hope you have a golden day. Ciao!
