"Pink Lotus with Rose Cup and Apple Blossom Shells," egg tempera, gold acrylic paint, rose cup, apple blossom, and pearlized umbonium shells, 4 1/2" x 4" (size including frame)
If it's just another example of gold in miniature, here is one I did with just gold acrylic paint, yet it has it's own kind of beauty. Both because I'm currently working on a commission, and because I am trying to decide if I can part with this miniature from my personal collection, I'm putting it up as a post to see if anyone is interested in purchasing it.
The shell craft alone took a week for me to create, and I emulated the lotus flower in shells on the top and bottom of the frame. Please indicate your interest in purchasing this miniature via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
