“Gilding” 9×12″ (Acrylic paint, found paper, sewing patterns, & stamps) For Sale: $100
This is a 1.5″ gallery wrapped canvas with painted edges suitable for hanging as it is!
I have always loved this quote from Madame Bovary, “Never touch your idols, the gilding will stick to your fingers.” It speaks to me of regret and loss. It’s a reminder that when you give something in your life too much power, that it will rebound on you and hurt. This lesson is one I have to relearn over and over again.
