Saphic

New Mixed Media Distressed Painting from the "Gay Dictionary Series

The work is self explanatory. It is one of a dozen new paintings based on the above theme.

I may, however, make some minor changes in this work because I am not satisfied with the balance.  Though still centered, I wanted this painting to have a bit of asymmetry.  A solution to the problem will be to extend the horizontal gold leaf lines across the right side of the painting. One of the lines will project across Sappho's head, but that will work just fine with the distressed painting technique.
