Ishmael

Oil and palladium leaf on linen, 48 x 72 inches.
Private collection

 

Palladium leaf scattered through the center of Ishmael adds another dimension to the painting when the light is right. Here’s a detail from the lower left half of the painting, exposed to show as much of the metallic leaf as possible:

This painting was used for a launch party at David Beahm Designs. David paired the painting with some fantastic looking roses. A few photos from the launch showing the painting and a few of David’s bouquets:
