Wait! Did I misunderstand? You are re-doing the sign??? Freshening it up a bit? Oh my, that’s something I would never ever be able to do! I tried a couple of years ago to “freshen” an old painting and wound up having to paint all over it with another image. You’re just so multi-talented! Great pic of you!
Thank you Ginger my friend, yes it was covered with dirt and the paint was coming off, I have no idea how long it had been up, two paintings one on one side of the frame and a slightly different one on the other side. I just wire brushed it down and lightly sanded it, they have been up there since we moved here twenty years ago, might be decades older than that just dont know. I am not going to deviate much from the originals does seem right some how, might just move the birds leg as it is in the wrong place too high up the birds chest. But its been fun doing it and I quite like the idea that my kids will walk past the pub in years to come and say my Dad did that. Hope you are well, must chat soon. Terry x
Wow, excellent work, Terry!
