"Golden Garland" This painting is one in a series titled “On the Surface” In this series I explore surfaces manmade and natural and how they evoke memories and emotions.  This work was inspired by my trip to France and the Palace of Versailles. I was blown away by the architecture, art, upholstery and decoration on the walls. There was so much gold and lush decoration everywhere you looked, it was overwhelming. In this work I was striving to reflect the French Baroque style and my emotive response to my visit to the Palace of Versailles.
