Self Portrait w/ gold leaf


9×12 in acrylic w/ gold leaf

Painted by Jake Nielson


I don’t know exactly where to start on this piece. I have struggled with my image of myself for years. That is why I chose this piece to be my debut for gold leaf. By doing this, I’m adding more value to my self portrait I guess. More appeal. But, maybe I’m wrong.


Whether I succeeded or not doesn’t matter. This piece is for me.
