See my live video demonstration of this painting glowing in the dark at my blog http://www.moniquelula.com :)
Since my first pack of poster paints at about five years old, I have been obsessed with paint and colors. All through my life journey I have painted. Paper, canvas, furniture, random objects were all painted. Painting has always been something that is naturally a part of my life, something I do without thought. Now I have a wonderful online shop filled with glow in the dark jewelry so it is without much thought that my paintings have started to glow in the dark also. I have mostly made them for myself, family and friends. And now choose to make some available online. I spend many hours preparing, creating and finishing all of my paintings and now making sure they have a really bright glow to each is a true labour of love. If you hang one of my paintings in your home you will see it glowing at night and experience the magic of glowies, and this is what I aim for. A beautiful glowing image. Thank you for considering my glowie art.
This is a mermaid silhouette painted in black pearl over a beautiful blue and green ocean swirled background. She is holding a large white bubble which has a little trail of smaller bubbles rising to the surface. This painting absorbs uv rays from light (sunlight is best) and glows in the dark a bright aqua blue. It must be seen in person to truly be appreciated. This is my original painting on canvas, one of a kind. Varnished with a protective gloss sealer, this painting will recharge and glow in the dark for 20+ years. Created here in my home studio in Southern California. I will include hanging hardware and a little uv light.
Painting is 10x8 inches. It is signed in black on the side, "Monique Lula 2017"
I will be shipping all items via US First Class mail. All orders ship with tracking, delivery confirmation, and email notification when your package ships. USPS priority shipping now available for US domestic customers, this only affects the speed of delivery once an item ships, not the time it takes me to create it. But once your item ships should reach you in USPS priority time of 2 - 3 days. You also get 100$ insurance on expedited orders.
Please make sure your address is correct on your account information *before* you submit your order to ensure the item gets to you! I am not responsible for lost packages due to incorrect addresses in the system. I receive the info you input here on Etsy so I have no way to know if it is missing an apartment number, etc. I do try to validate all addresses, but I do bulk shipping of hundreds of items a week, and sometimes in a day, so it is impossible to catch everything on my end. So please make sure your address info is correct, and if you are on mobile phones watch out for auto text mishaps.

Green and aqua are the brightest glow colors. If you are concerned with glow intensity get those colors. The violet needs ample UV rays from direct sunlight on bright sunny day, indoor lighting does not charge them so you need to wear outside! All items are tested during creation, and before packing and actually packed while glowing to make sure all items glow before being shipped out.
Different glow colors glow various lengths of time depending on amount of sunlight provided, different types of necklaces and styles will glow differently. Please wear in direct sunlight on a non cloudy day, during winter periods exposure to sunlight may need to increase. After being in sunlight for 30 minutes item will glow in the dark.
I hope to spread lots of beauty all around the world through my creations that you will see for sale here in my shop.
