Here's an interesting one:
My guess is this was started at least 50-60 years ago. I added some oil on top and cleaned up the lines. I sanded the frame and applied some boiled linseed oil to protect it. It was originally painted so I left some indications of that behind so the frame can tell its own history.
What a tremendous experience! I also got to bring two amazingly talented artist friends of mine to help get this finished. Completion photos will come shortly but you can't actually photograph the entire piece due to its position so you'll just have to see it in person!
