TOWER OF BABEL
8" x 10" ACRYLIC PAINTING OF THE FAMILIES FROM THE SONS OF NOAH, WHICH WE ARE ALL DESCENDANTS, WHO JOURNEYED TO THE EAST AND FOUND A PLAIN IN THE LAND OF SHINAR. THEN THEY MADE BRICKS AND BAKED THEM THOROUGHLY AND HAD ASPHALT FOR MORTAR. AND THEY BUILT A CITY AND A TOWER WHOSE TOP WAS IN THE HEAVENS. AND THE LORD SCATTERED THEM.
The simplest way to clean up an oil or acrylic painting on canvas is to use a white cotton cloth soaked in a gentle soapy water; olive oil–based soap works wonders. You’ll be surprised to see how much grime comes off. Be gentle with paintings with thick impasto, as you do not want to break hardened paint. You might want to use Q-tips and work gently in crevasses.
