Klimt-inspired ketubah

Another gift of a deep dive into a vision only glimpsed before:  the gilded and textured treasures of Gustav Klimt, translated into a cosmic ketubah, and grounded, like the vision on the horizon line of a planetarium as the light begins to change, with a clump of trees.  Crafting the art for this piece involved multiple layers of watercolor wash to give the heavens depth, and then a deliberate exercise in various metallic paints and metal leaf to design the swooshes that embrace the text and cut through the skies! Parts of the illumination are textured and raised, catching light and sparkling in copper, bronze, silver, and gold.
