This canvas is prepared with layers of glazes, tissue paper, gold leaf, and paint. This is a comission for a nurse I know who is from Italy. His son was 4 pounds at birth and the original photo was just of the pose in the painting. Canvas size is 18 inches by 24 inches.
This took me about 35 hours. I was a mess and had fun.
