I apologize for my sub-par photography skills as the pictures of “Mermaid” do not do the piece justice. The background is crackled white with copper, metallic purple and metallic turquoise splotches and turquoise, copper and purple fine and chunky glitter, as well as white iridescent stars that all shine beneath the glossy glaze varnish.
Her hair is a metallic black and her eyes are a metallic light blue, painted with glittery turquoise eyeshadow and pretty pink lipstick. Her tail is a salmon colour with turquoise "scales" and in her hands she holds a collection of pearls. This painting is unique from all of my other paintings in that, her skin is a metallic espresso colour, so it's sort of glittery and also shines beneath the glossy glaze varnish as if she were kissed by the sun. She has a purple Swarovski crystal bindi on her 3rd eye chakra as well as purple jewels on her breasts.

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.
