This is a photo taken when my daughter, Danielle, did a modeling shoot for MAC Cosmetics. I always wanted to experiment with gold leaf and acrylic as a mixed medium exercise and this was a delightful success. When a fellow colleague saw my work (he is a famous photographer named Graham Hobart and is in the testimonial portion of the website) he asked that I collaborate with him on other pieces. He is the only one in the world using infrared photography in portraits. My daughter modeled for one of his infrared's and I'm currently working on an adaptive piece very similar to this one. This piece measures 18 x 24 inches.
