More Progress on Desk

Its early days on this desk still, but I am going to work on completing areas of flowers while at the same time leaving areas less filled in where I plan to put birds, bugs etc.

The circle you see drawn in chalk is

where I will paint a steaming cup of trompe l'oeil coffee.

I do love the way the gold leaf contrasts with the flat painted flowers. If you have seen the silver leafed mirror frame painted with leaves and roses on this blog from earlier in May, you can see the same effect.
It lends a very romantic and ''old world'' feel.
