Art by Oklahoma Abstract Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy


© "Gold Leaf"

This painting is an interesting blend of several techniques, uniting acrylic paint with acrylic texture medium for the raised lines and using acrylic spray paints with both positive and negative stencil shapes to make the leaves. I leaned a bit stronger on my scenic painting techniques and style to create this one.  
Here where I am (central Oklahoma) there aren't any sugar maple trees like where I grew up in Upstate NY. Their shape is a strong trigger of nostalgia for my years in that area. This painting's bold design and creative use of the negative space brings it all together for a strong finished piece. Lastly, the limited color palette completes the whole concept supporting the idea and the name. 
"Gold Leaf" is painted on a 36"x36"x1.5" gallery wrap canvas, and is available at the Kasum Contemporary Fine Art gallery in OKC. Contact Tony for more info here
