Common Starling in Gold

Ink and Gold Leaf on Paper / 14" x 17" / July 2010


  1. Hello Miss Ashley.
    I find the "Common Starling..." image fascinating. You have listed Ink and Gold Leaf as the media, though I was wondering if any collage activity has taken place due to the intriguing nature of the composition and surface texture (albeit somewhat limited by the digital viewing experience). I look forward to seeing this developing work in person.

  2. Hello AJ,

    I'm grinning from ear to ear; the appearance of collage is precisely what I was aiming for, though no textured materials were actually used. Simply Ink and Gold Leaf. In real-life, the image, the gold in particular, has a striking quality that makes the piece more graphic, flat. Perhaps you need to come to Boston to inspect it closer...

  3. love it love it love it. can you bring it to class on thursday night so i can look closer?
