He shakes the pan, again and again.  Nothing.  How many days have passed since he started this search?  He is rich, on fool’s gold, that is.  Unable to feed his family, he clamors on.  Splash, scoop, shake, shake, shimmer.  Shimmer?  Not again, he thinks.  He looks closer.  Is it?  No.  More fool he, bless his soul.  

Searching for Gold

  • Acrylic paints on stretched canvas.  Fully finished with high gloss varnish to protect the painting.   The painting is 24 inches tall by 30 inches wide and 1 inch deep. Plaster is used under the paint to create an interesting texture on the canvas.  


    Metallic paints were used in this piece which shimmers in the right light.  The gold especially shines, and that's how I got the idea of a miner panning for gold.
