This painting is a sister painting to Nest with Muted Shadows. They look perfect together although different in color family. As with Nest with Muted Shadows, I love the way this painting plays between decorative and realism. I am interested in the relationship between the real and fake as we face the blurring of these lines in the paradigm shift of the future. This pattern effect is increased by the use of gold metal leafing that plays along the shadows like a patterned fabric. It is a beautiful, big size for a living room or hallway. Sides are covered in rustic gold metal leafing.
