Gorgeous New Oil and Gold Leaf Painting by Brad Kunkle

New York City-based Brad Kunkle, the artist who deftly combines oil and actual gold leaves into his paintings, recently showed two new works at the Los Angeles Art Show. One of them, called Over the Ocean, will simply take your breath away. Made of oil and gold leaf on linen, it features a beautiful woman being magically lifted into the air. Could a murmuration of starlings be behind this supernatural deed? (Speaking of which, have you seen the beautifully made video, A Bird Ballet?)
