Caution, oil painters!

"The Cure" 

10"x10" Oil on Linen Panel

Wow, I learned a good lesson today. The above painting was dry and needed
to be varnished.  I pulled out a can of spray varnish and didn't really pay
much attention to the label.  If I had, I would have noticed that it was an
old can given to me by a retired artist.  I really should have checked it by
spraying on a piece of white paper.  The "non-yellowing" varnish had
turned brown.  Since this painting has been entered in an art show, I
think it will just need to go as is.  I hope the judge likes paintings with a 
warm glaze.  Lesson learned!
