Mediums and substrate:

This painting is part of a series of experimental works exploring conscious movement, the paint and color harmonies. It was made from a mixture of oil paint, cold wax and alkyd gel medium on a matte polyester film. The beeswax gives body and texture to the oil paint, while the alkyd gel medium makes the mixture more flexible and resistant to crumbling.
The painting on polyester film is glued to an acid-free cardboard for strength and covered with a thin layer of cold wax medium for a light texture and a beautiful satin finish.
This artwork is shipped with a certificate of authenticity.
A white double mat is offered as an option. See the next section for details.

The logo does not appear on the original painting.
The artist’s signature is on the front of the work, although it is not always visible on the pictures.
At the back you will find the title of the work, the date, the mediums used, as well as the artist’s signature.
This paint is protected by a layer of hand-polished beeswax giving it a light texture and a satin finish. Although this type of finish can withstand the open air, it is suggested to frame the painting under glass or Plexiglas with a mat or spacers so that the surface of the painting does not touch the glass or Plexiglas.
The paint is offered with or without a mat.
The option without a mat includes:
- The painting
- The certificate of authenticity
The option with a mat includes:
- The painting – 9 x 12 x 1/8 inches (22.86 x 30.48 x 2 mm).
- An acid-free, double, white mat of archival quality – size 14 x 11 in (35.56 x 27.94 cm) – window opening: 7 ½ x 9 ½ inches (17.78 x 22.86 cm)
- An acid-free foam board to protect the back of the paint.
- The certificate of authenticity.
Please note that the window opening of the optional mat is smaller than the artwork and will hide a good part of it. If you like the rough sides of the painting, you are advised to choose the option without a mat. Your framer will be happy to cut a custom mat with a larger window or use spacers.
The option with a mat is available for those who prefer a quick and economical solution, as well as a painting with a less raw feel. Just insert the set into a standard 11 x 14 inches frame with a good depth and you are ready to hang the artwork on your wall!
