Luminary . 4ft x 5ft (acrylic, candle wax, glow paint)

1.
2.
3.
4.


Painting shown in:
1. normal lighting
2. normal and UV lighting combined
3. UV lighting only
4. no light - glow

It's 48x60 inches, made with acrylic paint (and some candle wax.)

The purple towards the edges doesn't show up well in the picture. There's also a gloss effect, which you can see a bit of in the upper left corner of the first image.

Thanks for looking!

Absolutely amazing! I love it.
The image, the colors are great under any light (or none, I guess). It is wonderful that you have shown it under these four conditions.
Nice size too!

Terrific under any/all/no light.
Fabulous work. I really love it under UV lighting,
those colors are so radiant!
