Hummingbird and Salvia, by Melissa A. Torres, 8x8 mixed media on canvas

This is an 8x8 painting on canvas. Mixed media, created using acrylics, gold leaf, Isopropyl alcohol, and resin. It consists of 4 layers of paint and 4 layers of resin. It is a bit heavier than a regular canvas because of the resin.

I love how the resin gives the painting a 3D effect as well as a glass like finish. It can be easily cleaned with rubbing alcohol or a product such as windex. Ready to hang.
It is available for purchase at my website.
