It may be treasured but is it worth it?

This rip can be made to disappear.

I’m often out meeting people throughout Los Angeles and Orange County to discuss art conservation questions for their paintings at people’s homes and offices (we pick up and deliver with people I meet). And this last week I consulted for a couple of projects for the City of Los Angeles’ Department of Cultural Affairs also.

Artworks and heirlooms being passed down to the next generation are full of memories… “triggers” for good family history stories and I always enjoy speaking with people about their family heirlooms. These types of items with positive vibes help people to remember their loved ones. But even though these types of items have most often been treasured, once they change hands as they have been passed down in the family, I am often asked, “Is it worth restoring?”

How can something be priceless when its not worth anything? What is worth saving and protecting of our “stuff?”  Some people “get it” at a DNA level that family history is important for lots of profound reasons and some of those reasons are multigenerational. Other need some time to come to their senses.

Consider that there is financial value, emotional value and/or historical value to be considered. It’s doubly nice when your emotional ties or historical connection, like with a family heirloom, is also a really nice work of art. Affecting value, is the condition and the needed oil painting restoration (painting conservation, art conservation, art restoration) like rip repair, cleaning a painting, flaking paint repair.

This family in Pasadena, California is now handing down the treasures that the parents collected as their family grew. There are lots of memories. We were honored to preserve, restore and assist them with a couple of dozen items. This is their quick testimonial.

Here is our webpage for other testimonials. Scroll down the page… I think you’ll find several of the examples interesting and entertaining: https://www.FineArtConservationLab.com/testimonials
