Forever is iridescent

Shining with several different hues when seen from different angles
Forever, 2006 by Suzanne Coley
I created this series of small abstract paintings with 22 karat gold leaf in 2006 after visiting Maryland State Parks and Forests.

Golden, iridescent glow and textures are achieved with acrylic paints, reflective particles, and genuine gold leaf.

Inspired by majestic forests early in the morning after it has rained, this is one of my favorite abstract series.

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
