"Circle Of Friends" Textured Imprinted Sculpted Multi-tonal Acrylic Abstract by Southwest Daily Painter~Amy Tuso

36"x36"x1.5"
Textured Acrylic
Gallery Wrapped Canvas

This painting was created through multiple steps over a period of a week's time.
Initially the texture compound is applied to the canvas and worked with imprints and scrapings.  Then layers and layers of glazing acrylics are manipulated to create interesting tones and values.
Subtle metallic golds and coppers are applied "here and there"
Finally the edges of the gallery wrapped canvas are matched with the tones of the painting creating it's own frame and UV glaze is applied.

Although every attempt is made to capture each piece of my art with photography, it is really impossible to see all of the subtly shades and tones.  It is for this reason I stand behind my art with an in-home trial when a collector purchases a piece.  Please visit my website for details.

I also have a print shop where cards, posters, stretched canvas paintings and prints are available.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
Have a blessed day...Amy
