Sepia, gold leaf and stainless steel are the main ingredients for this new little series.  Yes I used poured resin again – Why? Because imho it gives such a rich luscious look to most works.  It also makes the piece look finished and professional somehow!  What do you think?  Have you tried poured resin yet?  I will soon post all the things you need to resin yourself along with the type of resin I use – so stay tuned if that is of interest to you.

I like to create minimalistic pieces that seem quite simple and clean looking and I love a lot of white.  I like the modern look and the white is very striking.

I add gold leaf because it looks incredible under the resin.  The resin brings it to life and with the changing light in a room the piece looks different depending on the time of day and the way the light is reflecting on the piece.

Finally here is a photo of the four of them hung together.  They are 2.5″ in depth so although small in size they still make quite a statement because of their deep museum profile.  I hope you enjoy this little series.  Please do connect with me in the comments section.  I love to hear about you, your collections, your art, your process and what art means to you.  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions about these pieces or any other ones you may see here or on my website www.VanessaKatzArt.com  or please connect with me on my very active Facebook Page at www.Facebook.com/AbstractArt4U  Hope to see you there.
