Truth, Like Gold
"Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold." Leo Tolstoy
Gold leaf on canvas, with paint washed away to suggest the glimmers of brilliance that truth casts, and the dark spaces imposed by nuances of truth and/or deception. The gold leaf catches different lights at different times of the day or night. I'm passionate about personal truth, as the way to freedom from fear for self. The painting is a signature piece #5
Monochrome in gold and black
The colour gold, like truth, represents success, achievement and triumph. Associated with abundance and prosperity, luxury and quality, prestige and sophistication, value and elegance, the psychology of this colour (and of truth) implies wealth and freedom.
