"Jungle Jewel" Original 17.5 x 24.5 Acrylic Painting

A relaxing Saturday... did a 2 hour yoga workshop this morning and then came home to paint "Jungle Jewel". This is a very pretty piece made up of gallery wrapped canvases of various depths, wood molding and fused glass tile all attached to a wooden backing so that it hangs as one piece 17.5" x 24.5" for $875. It has been rather gray, so it was nice to do a tropical piece.
