TaosJazz Credenza by David Mapes. Taos Mountain in the Fall with Aspens and Hollyhocks. Wood, Tin, Acrylic, Patina and 23k Gold leaf. 19d x 60w x 35 Tall. The inside is nicely finished in black with an adjustable shelf on each side.
The embossing is done, (I may throw in a couple more hollyhocks). Now to add the patina, shading, possible etching, color and gold. If it looks great, it will be my new ad in the winter guide, assuming I get the artwork to the Taos News in time. I could have made this simple, but alas, I could not resist the challenge.
