A square impasto (thick paint) acrylic abstract painting with silver, metallic black and metallic white created in an expressive palette knife movement style and sprinkled with holographic silver glitter that shows a rainbow of colors as you look at it from different directions. It is calming and ethereal, like smoke. All of the paint used in this painting is metallic, giving it a sheen.

How to Care for Acrylic Paintings on Canvas:
Acrylic paintings are pretty durable, and water resistant, although not water proof. Keep them away from direct sunlight and humidity. Paintings on canvas aren’t as much of a humidity wimp as paper, but it can still damage them, and it can warp the wood stretchers and canvas.
Don’t rest anything on or against the painting. Acrylic paint is very, very sticky and will grab onto paper/ink/paint with a vengeance and refuse to let go. Wrapping a painting in plastic before packing it is the best way to go.
Don’t lean or rest the canvas part of the painting on anything. Always make sure all pressure is on the stretcher bars, because the canvas will distort and keep the shape of corners it’s laid against.
To clean acrylic paintings on canvas, use a dry, clean feather duster to remove any dust. Do not use a spray or anything that could deposit something onto the painting. If you must spot clean a part of the canvas, spot clean it gently with a clean cloth (soft jersey like an old t-shirt is best) with a small amount of cold water on it. Let it air dry.
Some of my paintings are mixed media and may have fabric, glitter, beads, or other things embedded into them. The edges of the fabric may unravel a bit with handling. That’s okay, it is part of the painting. Be extra careful when handling them and do not rub the painting.
