Reverse Acrylics on plexiglass

These pieces are the result of dozens of washes and layers of acrylic paint applied to the reverse side of 1/4" plexiglass
a mixture of iridescent inks, paints and acrylic paint in a style I have been working on for over 30 years but with the new technique of painting it in reverse, so that the presentation is a gorgeous, slick look that resembles a sheet of blown glass. I appreciate the encouragement of Prairiebrooke Arts who insisted that I needed to explore this technique more.
