Re: Tantalus - Hawaii

The volcanic mountains are very beautiful! I would love to go back to Hawaii and see one actually erupting. I think the volcanoes are far more interesting that the beach and sea, as lovely as those can be! Have a great time on your vacation!

Re: Tantalus - Hawaii

Some say the painting looks like oil in a diffrent site. Most probabaly it does in a way because of the cold wax medium I use to seal it. I seal the painting for two reason; frame without glass, protection from the environment e.g. water. Another advantage I personally observed is that, the cold wax medium brings out the luminosity and clarity of color

Thanks

Beautifully done. I really like your Greens.
By "Cold Wax medium sealed" do you mean Dorland's Wax?
Regards,
Greg.
