Nature is Golden

In this collection, artist Melanie Girard paints in oils and 24K gold leaf. The same gold leaf that is used to decorate the Château de Versaille and other patrimonial buildings of France. In many cultures and spiritual beliefs, gold has been said to attract honours, happiness and wealth; to provide composure to tension and stress and to amplify positive feelings. It also assists one in attuning to nature and its healing forces. Melanie is inspired by the beauty of nature, the castle and marshy lands that surround her studio in Aigues-Mortes, France. She uses her background in design to mix colour tones and values harmoniously together that is satisfying to the eye.
