Geri's Gallery of Cast Off Masterpieces "Cool Waters"
"Cool Waters" is most likely an acrylic painting on a 12x16 canvas by Lillie Bunch. It had a few damaged spots where the paint was chipping off. This is probably why it was a cast off piece of art that I salvaged from my favorite place to shop, Rolling Hills, which is a disaster relief ministry thrift shop. I framed it a few years ago in a lovely wood frame that was already painted gold. The chipping continued to be a problem, so I tackled it by applying a clear matte gesso over the entire piece and a second coat over the troublesome areas.
In these photos...the gesso is still wet.
I touched up the damaged areas with acrylic paint.
I finished by applying a gloss glaze over the entire painting.
