I'm all varnished, wired and ready to hang. OK, not me, but six new paintings: the beginning of the Passions: Red & Black series. They will be installed in my friend's gallery restaurant later today.
Liz Letourneau, I followed your example and varnished most of them by pouring the varnish on the painting and dispersing it with my hands. Awesome trick, girl! The things you learn on TAC! It's too cold here right now to open doors while spraying varnish, so I had to go back to applying varnish another way. Worked like a charm--not a brush stroke in sight. However, I must caution anyone using this technique: Afterwards, scrub your hands better than I did. The heel of my right hand now looks as if my skin is coming off in huge flakes! Scared me until I realized it was residual varnish.
