  • A 23-inch rack is used for housing telephone (primarily), computer, audio and other equipment though is less common than the 19-inch rack.

My latest painting: "Peppers ", 33x41, Gouache and gold leaf on linen.

I made many mistakes while applying the gold leaf (in small 80x80 sheets) but the mistakes seem to add some "character" to the surface. The leaf is very thin and allows "burnishing" (to increase the brilliance) as well as simply working the gold down so thin that the backing colour shows through. This was done by putting a small amount of alcohol on a make-up remover thing (small cotton pad) and gently rubbing for a few seconds. This removes enough gold to allow the backing colour to be seen.

The gold leaf is 23 carat 80x80 medium compressed.

Things I could have done differently to improve this:

1. put some kind of shadow image of the plant in the background.
2. spend more time working the individual leaves
3. work the gold more uniformly to allow more colour to show through
4. perhaps add more leaves or additional branches?

The interior walls are decorated with 152 statues, county's and city's coat of arms, and local flower motives. Around 40 kilogram of 22-23 carat gold was used for decorations also on the ceilings like here.
The building has 27 doors, 29 staircases, and 13 elevators. In addition to planetary, conference and session rooms, it includes over 200 offices. The symmetrical arrangement of the building is designed to serve a double chamber system, similar to the Capitol in Washington. The huge dome hall in the middle was designed for joined sessions. This part of the building was the first to be completed, hosting the parliament millennial section of 1896. 16 statues of Hungarian kings and rulers, along with their coat of arms, ornate the walls.
