Artist Proof
Embellished Intaglio 
12" x 12"

I love embellishment. Adding watercolor, gold leaf, ink, graphite, paper, whatever is at hand, and whatever the piece calls for. It is like putting together a puzzle, or figuring out a mystery. I love solving the riddle of creating a piece of art.

This was just such a riddle. I started out with an intaglio on Rives BFK and started adding watercolor and gouache, then ink. The final flourish, 23 karat Italian gold leaf. I am not sure it is really from Italy, but the name is romantic and adds a air of history for me. Image size is 12" x 12" on larger paper.
