Looking Through The Aspens

This piece measures approx. 16 x 28 inches. It is a multilayer image with dimensional trees on both the gold back surface, the mat surface, and finally on the surface of the glass that covers the image. Unlike most of my work, light cannot pass through this piece. The background was created with metallic powders. The trees are created with glass enamels and multicolor beads and no-hole beads. There are also polished semi precious stones in the image as well as a vintage rhinestone. This is just a continuation of some of the techniques that I have been using to create my minatures.
