The medium product is something you mix with paint which makes colours like transparent,it was used centuries ago before the coming of the impressionists.It gives akind of depth to paintings,the only problem is that before using it I sused to make one painting a months but now for the same surface it takes me about three or rather 4 months.I use Lefranc Bourgeois
colourless painting medium which you may find in the states because my girlfriend bought me some in Houston!
About Initiation;I'm talking about magical initiation and this peculiar moment known as the cross of the Abyss,when you loosed your ancient passions and interests in your search of initiation and when the new light which is about to submerge you has not come yet and you're crossing a deep dark country only enlightened by the beginning dawn to come.

Great work, I love how the image moves your eye around, and thru as you digest what exactly might be happening. The Colors are fantastic...What do you mean by medium? Does it have a name or is a guarded chemists secret? And can you briefly describe what you mean by initiation? Love it as I do all your work.

It's amazing to have a master of oil like yourself posting here. I treasure getting the chance to learn from pictures such as yours. You have such control over bright colors, I always impressed.
