Well if you do it always shows on the outside. At least that is what mom says. Acrylic expressionistic abstract in vibrant swirls of colour. Some over lapping and others softly flowing. The underpainting is a soft soft pale blue on this 18"x 24" canvas. The most care and professional packaging is always done with two tube system for shipping with the piece rolled. I take the greatest of care in having my art arrive at its new home safely.
