From the shape of the canvas to the sparkle of the fish scales, this painting is unique. It offers a moment of peace to the viewer.
The canvas is 12x16 inches in an oval shape. The painting is finished on the sides and will look amazing hanging as is. The image was created with acrylic and airbrush.
Actually, this painting does glow, but I have to admit, the koi give up their glow pretty quickly. It was one of my first attempts and a learning curve on using glow mediums. I thought it best to promote as an original work that does not glow. I would hate for your first introduction to my glow works to be 'eh'. It’s still fun to use the black light and enjoy the fleeting magic, and I'll send a black light with your purchase.
However, the painting itself remains a conversation starter and adds peace to any room.

I prefer to frame them without glass, but if you use glass, just make sure it is not UV resistant.
Sunshine will definitely charge the paint and allow it to glow all night. However, the black light brings out the colors better and brighter. I would keep the black light nearby to use for an extra dose of energy for the artwork.
Search for 'UV black light' on Amazon.com. And remember, not all black lights are UV lights. Make sure to choose a UV black light.
When a black light is used on it for a bit, the painting will glow bright for maybe 20 mintues and then fade, but it won't stop shining. It will continue to glow softly all night in shades of blue and green.
This can happen when it gets humid and the painting is left unframed. When you frame the painting, this will flatten it and keep it in place. However, you can also lightly mist the back of the painting and place a book on top of it. Give it a couple of hours to dry and lift the book. All flat again!
