This is a painting done with acrylic paints. It incorporates a large, as well as several smaller resin half spheres as collage.  The painting also contains some gold leaf, as well as blue and silver glitter, which gives the painting a life of its own under proper lighting. The painting has been sprayed with archival varnish, which extends its longevity and further protects it from dust and scratches.

This gallery-type canvas does not require framing, and the sides are painted in black.

How to care for this acrylic mixed media painting?

For cleaning purposes, dab lightly with a dry cloth or a feather duster (for those nooks and crannies). However,  excessive dusting and direct touching should be kept minimal.

Acrylic paints will not yellow or fade with the passing of time. However, to maximize its longevity, the painting should be kept in a dry place, away from direct sunlight or excessive heat.
