Test Run of Amber Medium... Painting of medium cups

I was sent a bottle of amber medium to try out...another hard
resin like copal, but doesn't tack up nearly so quick. Think its
been a good decade since I've used anything other than Garrett's
copal medium.

Was interesting to try it...and impatient and under the weather
on prednisone and antibiotics so I couldn't go outside to paint,
I just set up my medium cups...ironically, the one nearest is
of my copal medium. haaa...

5"x 7" oil

Prednisone ?????

thanks Alina...

thanks Rene..
yeah, picked up a flu bug and virus from teaching students near two weeks ago, and can't quite shake it. Legs still weak...not up to full vigor, but the prednisone is a steroid to help my lungs where this thing has settled in.

I've got a military connected 30% lung disorder, so...when you hear folks talk about it being tough to paint outdoors in winter and I'm out there, don't hold much sympathy for them!!! hahaaaa....

thanks again
