A few weeks ago I posted about a painting restoration I was working on and I completed it and it was recognized today at their service with a few comments from yours truly. I added a few pics. I tried to get a close up of where I had scraped old paint off and then repainted but they did not show enough detail. Anyway, pretty happy with it and was a wonderful pastoral scene conceived by the original painter, Dorothy Horne Decker. She has miniature portraits of presidents Eisenhower to Bush at the Butler Institute in Ohio and has done a number of Governors, mayors,and business folks. It was an honor and an educational experience to have this opportunity. I had worried about the final varnish but took my time to get a good even layer and it worked well.
About the pictures, the 1st is a side view to show size of painting, 7X16. 2nd is view from sanctuary. 3 and 4 are closer to show all of the paint side to side and the last is a straight on. Now I can go to Florida with a clear conscience.
