Oil Painting Restoration & Conservation in the Flathead Valley, Kalispell Montana - Abbrescia Art Restoration

From the moment an oil painting is completed, it begins to age. Oil paintings on canvas may suffer from several ailments over the years such as yellowed varnish, smoke damage, mildew, tears or rips in the canvas, and flaking paint. Whether you're getting ready to send an oil painting of a well known artist to auction or just want to restore the brilliance of original color to a family heirloom, you may want to consider having the painting cleaned to optimize your return.

Perhaps your oil painting just needs a cleaning by removing the layers of the old-yellowed varnish to reveal the freshness of the colors underneath. Or, it may need more extensive restoration such as re-lining of the original canvas with new canvas to repair a tear and re-consolidate the paint layers to give the your painting a new lease on life for future generations.
