Comfort Zone, collage/acrylic, 22 x 28, by Elizabeth W. Seaver
Andrew Finnie asked me whether I used a varnish with a UV protection coating in it. The answer is yes. I use a great Golden polymer varnish which you thin and brush on. I coat my paintings twice. It helps protect the colors in the collage and the paint from fading. Keeping the paintings out of sunlight is always a good idea, however! Thanks for the question, Andrew. Go see his blog. His work is darkly fantastical and so amazing, and his writing is, too.
I'm having adventures with my new camera, which has held up my posts somewhat. I am finding a couple of things as I bump along with it. One is that when the batteries are losing power, all manner of weird and puzzling things happen to interfere with picture taking. (Note to self: check battery charge first!) The second is that if you put the bizarre messages which appear on your camera display screen into the Google search engine, some poor soul has had the problem before you and posted some kind of help for you. The interwebs are an amazing thing!
