This scene was in my neighbors back yard. The five koi fish represent eternal wealth and well being. I layered the oil glazes with the gold leaf to create a slight luminous effects with a drippy effect for the water.
Evolving through extensive experimentation, Vic Mastis, a St. Louis artist, has created a unique oil painting technique of multi-layered paint and gold leaf.
The result of her technique, along with her daring brush strokes and subdued colours, is a collection of landscapes and florals that exude sensual romanticism and elegant reminiscence.
In addition to founding Gateway Pastel Artists, Vic's work has been seen in the Edward Hopper House in Nyack, New York as well as in Florida's Fort Walton Museum. Through these and many other venues, she has won many awards. Her paintings are found in various private collections, including Anheuser-Bush, The Cancer Center at St. John's Hospital, Dr. Hartmann and Instrument Music Store..
