The long wait

The painting 'Bere' I completed in December 2010 is almost dry. This might explain why so many artists in history died penniless. It was because their work wasn't dry until years after they were dead.

I know I could've accelerated the process with medium, but I wanted to know how long it would take without any artificial intervention. Too long!

By the way, it's now March 27 2012 and I still get black fingers if I touch certain areas of the painting.

April 30th and the painting is touch dry, if you don't touch too hard.
