I added gold paint to Auramundus

I decided to give this image an old title reflective of someone living in the 3rd Century. My original concept was to have the image look like it was painted on wood with gold leaf. I used silks Mistyfused to a backing, did a bit of stitching and then mounted the piece on heavy canvas. I used a stencil to add the paint. I guess I was influenced by seeing lots of gold mosaic artwork in Italy. Not sure if I will pursue this style, perhaps one is enough.
