Painting: Oil, Gold Leaf on Canvas.
Our illusion of our golden self trumps the reality of our existence. This portrait of JFK (oil on canvas and 24 karat gold leaf) is a painting in my hopefully endless series of iconic golden portraits. I started painting iconic portraits by painting portraits with a gold leaf background. My evolution led me in a big loop ending almost to my starting point with one crucial difference - now I paint the background and do the actual portrait in 24 karat gold leaf.
My subjects are iconic people / topics that have had an impact on me or our society.
I used pure 24K gold leaf on this painting - it emits a rich brilliance.
The painting is signed on the back and has my “e” symbol on the front.
The painting continues around the sides, so it is ready to hang unframed.
