Firefly Fantasy Portrait Post 11

And so, it’s finished. And surprisingly it’s dry. Dry enough at least to put a coat of a new type of varnish over it for protection. (Most oils paintings should remain unvarnished for six months to a year to be sure all the thick paint is dry down to the canvas. I’m still not a “thick painter” so my canvases dry faster.) I’ll varnish it tomorrow.
I also built a frame for display purposes. This painting will be displayed and presented at the STARBASE INDY convention this weekend so I wanted it to look nice while on display. Framing is a personal decision so I don’t impose my ideas of a frame onto a client. They can get it framed to their tastes and I’ll reuse this one.

    A beautiful job, it should be hanging in an Art Gallery! Rembrandt would be proud of your colour palette and your dramatic use of light. I even like the frame!
