the lions will roar again
Customer brought in these lions , their Russian made for a large Baroque cabinet. It has been in her family for years and she said it didn't fit in her home so she wanted to keep the lions. These were once gilded many moons ago. I found reminiscences of gilt under paint and crud. 23.5 Ct. gold. Love working with gold. The under painting is an oil used for gilding. 3 coats and rubbed out after each coat.
I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
