Ferryside


Despite all your best efforts to be careful occasionally accidents happen with paintings. This can be a problem.
Take for instance the time when a gallery owner decided to repaint their walls and took down all the paintings. They stacked our paintings face to back. This was okay for the first few paintings but mouldings of the rear ones were scratched by the metal hanging fittings attached to the rear of the paintings. Result half a dozen ruined frames for which we suffered the loss. It was a genuine accident but one that cost us.
We always wrap our paintings to transport them but even so on occasions they can get damaged when hanging them. This happened recently and meant having to repaint the sky on one painting. All good practice for colour matching looking on the bright side.
The painting above is of Ferryside in the sunshine and is available.
