Painting of the Virgin Mary

This antique painting of the Virgin Mary had been spray glued to a board and the paint was detaching from the canvas. We sent the piece to a restoration artist where the piece was removed from the board, canvas re-lined covering previously patched holes and attached to new stretcher bars. The missing paint was re-touched and filled with a finishing coat of varnish to seal the piece. Now the painting is restored and displayed in a 22K gold hand carved closed corner frame with a custom gold liner.

Antique Wooden Frame

Bill took this antique heirloom of a framed family portrait from the late 1800’s and brought it back to life. Pieces of the wooden frame’s base were missing and the decorative edges were chipped all around the frame. He reconstructed the wooden edges and attached new molded compo over the top that he hand formed. After this process he re-finished the frame and now it looks good as new!

“I just picked up an antique frame Bill restored. I can’t stop looking at how wonderful it turned out. It is truly an amazing job. Thank you, Bill.” -Michael Orsak
