    1 of 2 paintings completed

    I just received my Damar crystals so another day before I can repair the tares.
    But I did clean the other painting the customer brought in.
    This is smokers dirt on a early 1800's landscape 14x29

    A bit time consuming cleaning about a 2" sq at a time any more then that and I risk the possibility of removing paint.

    Just a cleaning job to remove the smoke and air dirt but still fun to do as I uncover the original beauty of this painting.

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

    Man that's fantastic. If you showed me the pictures side by side I wouldn't have thought it was the same painting.
