Bats and Butterflies
Acrylic and Gold Leaf
ABOUT THE WORK
When I first discovered these shaped panels I immediately thought the gothy, Victorian shape needed to have a bat painted on it. Then I thought, "What's more Victorian than gold?" So I added gold leaf with a subtle Fleur De Lis pattern that is an homage to my French roots as a Louisiana native. That combo creates the intriguing, dark vibe that you often feel down there in the home of voodoo.
