I apologize for my sub-par photography skills as the pictures of “Golden Angel” do not do the piece justice. The background is crackled white with gold splotches and gold fine and chunky glitter that shines beneath the glossy glaze varnish.
Her hair is a metallic black and her eyes are a metallic gold, painted with glittery gold eyeshadow and pretty red lipstick. Her robes are various shades of gold, with pearl accents, as well as a pearl necklace around her neck. Her fluffy, white, shimmery wings are made of mulberry paper.

How To Take Care of Your Painting:
My paintings should be dusted regularly, especially if you smoke in your home. The front and sides of the paintings can be gently wiped clean with dish soap and water, but take care NOT to get the back of the canvas wet.
If you push on the back of the canvas, the varnish may crack. In most cases, the cracks won't be visible to the naked eye (like if you were just standing there looking at a hung painting you wouldn't notice them), but can be seen up close, so please be careful when choosing a place to hang it so that if it falls for some reason, the back of the canvas won't hit anything solid, such as the corner of a shelf.
Please take care of your painting. I work really hard on them and I want them to last your lifetime.
