Visit to Burlington

We were visiting Burlington, VT a couple weeks ago for the annual meeting of the Historical Society for Early American Decoration ( This group studies and recreates historic painting and stenciling, from the simple to the incredibly complex. One of the special exhibits at this meeting was a display of work by teachers with a Vermont connnection.
I became involved with this work years ago when I was beginning to study decorative painting and gilding.
Check out the society's web site for more information about what we do.

Since I was encouraging two other people to start blogs, I realized I should have one myself.

This blog will focus on my interests in the gilding, restoration, antiques and the world of decorative arts in general.

Thank you for reading (and following)!
