Thank you Jennifer. I now have to wait until July or August to finish both Eternal Beauty and Eternal Beauty II. I don't know if I want to use spray varnish or spray acrylic. Have to research that. I also have to investigate the shine difference between satin finish and high gloss finish for these two paintings. Do you have any experience with this, ideas or knowledge?

its an Oil? Or an acrylic? I use Satin finishes personally unless I want a really glassy look... I don't mind spray finishes (but I use those most for works that are not canvas's and use poly-crylic or a varnish or polyurethane (Note: All are clear - but oil based polyurethanes tend to Yellow more coats you add... and if too thick - will CRACK on stretch canvas as room temp changes causing the frame or the canvas to flex).

Thanks for the info Jennifer. I will look deeper into those recommendations. These are oil paintings on canvas.
