to save the land and the sea,

the mountains and trees

the very air we breathe 

when the time is ripe

it will open the door

The obsession with GOLD remains. I was looking for a way to make gold mesh and found three easy-to-obtain materials to paint:  1) cheesecloth, 2)a mesh fabric you can buy at the fabric store, and 3)light-weight window screen material (available as yardage cut from a roll at the hardware store).

You can use the mesh as a stencil to sponge paint through and also as collage pieces to cut and glue.

The gold “sky” in the piece above was created by painting over a piece of cheesecloth with two shades of gold acrylic.  The screen material is gray, but I painted it gold and also black, which resulted in the random markings seen here.
