#300: Gold Magnolias

Click to buy (starts at $45):
16x12 inch. Oil on wrapped canvas. 
For my 300th daily painting, I decided to try a couple of new techniques - using structural gel medium to make the flowers 3D and also use the age honored gold leaf technique to partially gold plate the flowers. Once both dried which took quite a while.. I did my usual oil painting on it. I kid you not, this painting used more than 1 tube of white oil paint. If anyone ever wants to buy me a present, I'll happy accept donations of tubes of white oil color (kidding, of course!)
