Art Conservation Consulting Overseas, Out of State, Door to Door

I consulted with a client in Hawaii today about doing the conservation work and making several historic paintings of volcanoes and lava look their best.

As an aside, while good photos might be helpful in having a better conversation over the phone, it is impossible to give estimates of costs for cleaning, sight unseen. The cleaning process is not a task that is estimated by the sq. in. like linoleum or hardwood floors. Cleaning requires testing the discolored varnish, testing the ease of removability of the nicotine layer, whether previous dirt was varnished over (and how long ago), is the varnish damar, mastic, Urethane or a linseed oil mixture? And most important, does the original paint dissolve with the varnish? Sometimes the clouds in the sky are stable but the leaves in the trees are not. The list of variables goes on and on.

In the last month, I’ve visited with and discussed projects for people in London, England, Salt Lake City, UT, Hawaii and many times for clients and inquiries from San Francisco to Orange County, CA.
