    Another fun project Mirror Frame

    I just took this 200 year old frame in. It has 2 glass paintings that need touch up and extensive water gilding repair.
    These are the jobs that I love getting into. It came out of one of them BIG R.I. Beach side home and has been in storage for 25 years.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Kim this is not one that I go into a little apprehensive, seems to be getting old hat.
    This mirror will be for sale when it's done. The customer is having the repairs done for resale.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Finished up the frame and glass painting touchup

    This took some time. If you know anything about water gilding.
