I did this painting a couple of years ago and then varnished it to rework some areas without realizing that the varnish would yellow. I have always liked the feel of it so I pulled it out and sanded the yellowed area so I could finish the painting. We shall see - today was a "down" day since my daughter left for Austin for grad school. Despite the fact that she has lived far away quite often, I always go through a bit of a wrenching period after she has been home and then leaves again. The last couple of days were spent assisting her in her packing and readying - I was pretty distracted.
