OK, here's a one-off piece. 10" x 8" and done entirely with gold leaf.
 I've been reading a book about the French artist Odilon Redon and this piece came as a result of that (unintentionally). Redon painted and drew numerous one-eyed creatures - and the green glass blob that is partially covered with gold leaf reminds me of an eye looking out of the surface.
 Over the last 2+ years, numerous paintings of mine have exhibited subtle influences of other artists, without any overt intention of doing so. But it makes sense, since we're all part of the same continuum; the ineffable wave of creativity that moves across the Universe. How's THAT for waxing poetic?
