Precious Commodity and Renaissance

I believe we are living in one of the greatest eras of scientific discovery mankind has ever known.  We are experiencing a renaissance of new making in all its exquisite detail — through sharing of knowledge, lore, experimentation, expertise and especially the raw materials and availability of tools.


All raw materials are culled, sifted and otherwise prepared by me.  Elements of finest quality from around the world.  Pigments are ground here and applied by fine sable brush.  Likewise, Varnish is made  from raw elements.  Retouching is guaranteed, reversible and constant. Click to view a gallery of materials I use.
