    painting conservation (tricky)

    One that I've had to think about for a while before attempting to work on.
    Somewhere around 1700. A number of previously repaired area. Since the previous cleaning and repair thepainting was subjected to extreme heat which curdled the shellac, removing the shellac is the challenge without removing the paint. The newer repaired areas are exposed easily and will be touched up with acrylic for easy removal if need be in the future.

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

    Some of these I wouldn't even have imagined were salvageable - always amazing to watch.
