Meeting with Clients in Las Vegas and Utah


I’m on the road right now, meeting with private clients in Las Vegas, NV and Murray, and with museum clients in Springville, UT and in SLC.



Paul Lauritz's "Crashing Harmony"

Art conservation treatments done on Crashing Harmony by Paul Lauritz


Springville Art Museum Director, Vern Swanson was thrilled with the cleaning and lining we did of their world class 50″ x 60″ Paul Lauritz of waves crashing on tide pool rocks, “Crashing Harmony.”. He loved the much brighter colors and that way the disturbing cracks disappeared. We also cleaned a John Hafen of hay stacks and took off all kinds of retouchings that had no reason for being there! I mean, when we cleaned them off, there was perfect paint below. So, it was great to return his painting with 95% less retouchings… and much better colors… even though it was a Tonalist piece.

He took the time to talk to me about the recent mural I saved from demolition in London, England. He was very enthusiastic about the efforts to save a cherished work of art, that’s well done and that he grew to love while attending church in that building for several years. So, he knows that image intimately. For more info on this project see http://mormonartconservation.org/murals/mural-removal-hyde-park-chapel-london/

Tomorrow morning, I’ve been invited to attend a committee meeting between the LDS Church History Dept. and the Museum of Church History and Art. Then I get taken out to lunch!
