A textured abstract painting. Cosmos is a collection of layered swirls that flow over the surface of the canvas.
I did not set out to do a painting on the theme of the cosmos. However, as with many abstract works, when it was finished I asked the question What can I name it? What does this make me think of? Well. it makes me think of stars. galaxies. asteroid belts, deep dark space, clouds of swirling matter in the far reaches of the galaxy etc. !! Therefore Cosmos seems an appropriate name!
The painting is created with many layers of acrylic paint. This has been textured in some areas with acrylic mediums. There are a few subtle strokes of silver artists glitter on the top surface too. The whole work has been sealed with a UV protective varnish.
The painting is on deep sided canvas. The sides are painted black.
