Hi, Jennifer! It was meant to be displayed virtically, but if it fits your decor better it can be displayed horizontally as well. Thanks, Natasha.

Hi Natasha! I just bought "Meditation." Can it be hung horizontally or is it meant to be displayed vertically? Thanks! Jennifer

Hi, S Smith. The painting comes stretched already, edges of painting are painted so there would really be no need to frame it - just hang it on the nail. Thank you.

Hey there - I'm trying to get a feel for what this would cost to frame, as I presume it comes rolled up? What are generally the options for framing something like this (ie, stretched over a frame, or behind glass, etc)? I'd love to get a rough idea of the cost..... Thanks

Natasha-Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your artwork. I love the colors! I am saving up and hope to be able to purchase one of your paintings soon.

A Berry purchased this artwork. 6/5/2010 | 8:23 AM

This painting is even better than it appeared on the computer! The tiny touches of metallic paint were a nice surprise. Everyone that has seen it has had positive things to say. Everyone also has a different interpretation - my 5 year old daughter wondered if "those circles are abstract flower petals on the breeze"- seriously, any piece of art that grabs me like this and gets a Kindergartener really thinking is great!

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This painting was inspired by the chapped off paint and rust I saw on the walls of buildings and railroads. To me it looked like a work of art created by nature and time. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang. 

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
