Let’s Become Like Birds

Fitzgerald LetsBecomeLikeBirds

Let’s Become Like Birds,” 48″ diameter, oil with 23k gold in MDF panel.  It is one of the main pieces of “From the Core”, a funded USA Project.

The idea of this painting is that all of us strive toward transformation.  Sometimes we wish to fly, or we wish our energy, our presence, our ideas could inhabit the realm of birds – in the air, in the sky; above.  And so we do.

From the Core FUNDED!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Karen @ 11:51 am

Thank you to everyone who supported my “From the Core” project at USA Projects.  It has funded!  Now the fun begins – I am already at work on new, large, gilded paintings.  For the first time, I’m working with palladium and moon gold – two exquisite gilding materials that have their own special light and energy.

The signature painting from this new suite:

“The Watchman He Lay Dreaming”, 24″ diameter, oil with moon gold, 23k gold and aluminum on MDF panel.

Stay tuned!
