This painting is made by layering acrylic paint and clear resin. I repeat this process many times over and the result is a thick painting that contains shadows that change with the light source. (Please note that images are taken with bright lighting and show shadows that may not be present when the painting is in normal room lighting.) This painting has a domed finish and polished sides. Glossy paintings have a slight reflection to them, but also have deep colors and more pronounced shadows. It is ready to hang without a frame.
