Like a treasured personal heirloom lovingly held and handled by its owners over generations of time, “Gold Leaf” shimmers with soft warm tones. Burnished but remaining brilliant through the ages, a blend of honeyed caramel, apple cider, softened butter, Jamaican allspice, polished amber, yellow ochre, toasted walnuts and pecans reveals the colors of paints beneath its surface.
Hiding in this Deluxe Edition's central band of mahogany and mountain steel are delicate patterns of indigo, orchid and French ultramarine. A slight touch of rose madder adds a pinky cast. The dramatic linear effect is enhanced by large repeated squares of pale canary, mocha and molasses with watery hints of juniper and cedar, while fluid shapes and smaller squares of pigeon and stone blues join the refrain.
