HOW TO CLEAN SMOKE AND LINSEED OIL FROM A PAINTING


MARIAN LOIS WRIGHT
PAINTER
1883





Cleaning the surface of the painting is important, you can first remove smoke and grime with milder cleaners.  Once you have the varnish to clean most of the time you have to clean it twice giving days in between for the paint to harden.  Linseed oil is a medium artists used in the 1800's.  Used within painting pigments or in addition to bring doll dark colors to life.  They used this medium to see what the old colors were before adding more layers to it.  Now, most oil painting colors have linseed oil in them.  It is a more refine way to see your works pure and as if they were wet days and weeks later.

Brush Strokes Fine Art LLC Celebrates 16 years

BRUSH STROKES FINE ART LLC AND ANABELA FERGUSON

NOVEMBER 16th - DECEMBER 14th, 2015

WWW.ANABELA-ARTIST.COM

As Brush Strokes Fine Art LLC celebrates sixteen years of uninterrupted service to the community, we take this opportunity to thank you for helping us succeed.  By “us”, I mean my family and me.  My husband does so much for me: he encourages me, helps me to set up in shows, helps me build inside the business so that I can grow, motivates my ideas, advises me, and continues to love me as I use the talents God gave me as a professional artist.  My son makes the flower beds look just right outside my studio, does my spring and winter studio cleaning, helps me with marketing logos for my uniforms, and much more.  My mother keeps me in prayers and uplifts us with her love, words, and kindness. Then I have all of you that continue to provide us with words of kindness, reviews, referrals, and repeated business opportunities.  Thank you all for believing in Brush Strokes Fine Art LLC. 

This year I am celebrating by giving each family a special “thank you” for your support. Please drop by Huntsman Square Mall, Springfield, Va, November 16th through December 14th. between 11:00am and 6:00pm and receive $75 off on any custom framing or $75 off any Fine Art Cleaning or Restoration or $50 off any painting you see displayed at this particular showcase.  I’ll look forward to seeing you! 

Once again, thank you for helping us make the past sixteen years so successful. Next Show Exhibit will start next week at Huntsman Square Mall, 7500 Huntsman Blvd, Springfield VA. .

Brush Strokes Fine Art LLC and Vienna Arts Society

Vienna Arts Society
and 
Restorer Anabela Ferguson 

October 2015

This was one of the most amazing experiences I have had with a group of professional artists. I was truly intimidated by so much wisdom, but this group of artists, took the time to get to know me, and were warm and open to suggestions and comments. If you are looking for a home with artists, exposure of your art, membership is very reasonable, and it is a great way to get your art known.




Vienna Arts Society    https://www.facebook.com/viennaartssociety?fref=ts

There is no Photoshop used on either one of these two images, except for the size. This one was delivered this morning and truly miss it in my studio. Wonderful colors of style the artist used. I was honored to be chosen the one to clean and restore this piece as well as framing it to the original frame.
