"Galkyd in a jar that i can no longer open"
oil on canvas panel
6 x 8

I bought Galkyd medium. I wanted to try it out.

It claimed to dry oil paint quickly, so a finished painting would be touch dry within a few hours instead of days.

The plastic bottle the liquid came in wasn't to my liking so I poured it into this small jar. I didn't use the Galkyd that day, or the next. Weeks turned into months, and I remembered that I hadn't tried out the Glakyd. I went to open the little jar and it was sealed shut, now i can't open it!! It's in there for ever.

Oh well, I don't mind waiting for the paint to dry anyways.
