Museum Quality Handmade Oil Painting Recreations

  • The Sky’s the Limit and Oil Paintings are not Just Limited to Walls.

    Designing is now being taken to new heights and the sky’s the limit. If you have seen some of the newer Model Homes, you will now notice that when you walk-in, you will not just be looking straight ahead, but you will also be looking up to check out the ceilings.

    It is not the popcorn ceiling that you will now be attracted to, but ceilings that look as beautiful as the Sistine Chapel.

    The “Painted Ceiling” is actually a Mural on Canvas. The Murals are hand-painted oil on canvas that are painted at our studios and then are installed at the location of the ceiling.

    For larger ceilings, these murals allow our artists to accurately reproduce larger scaled artwork on actual canvas, which when installed onto ceilings provide a very realistic look. The paintings are large in scale, but since the artists work very closely with the original Old Master’s paintings, the finished paintings are intricate in detail.

    The Ceiling paintings can be one large painting or they can be comprised of smaller panels. The paintings can be 81” x 144” and for larger paintings that exceed 81” or 144”, the canvas can be professionally seamed.

    There are many advantages of using Ceiling Painting murals instead of having artists paint directly onto ceilings:

    Less expensive to have our artist paint on canvas than if the artist painted directly on to the Ceiling.
    Convenient for our artist to paint artwork in our studio vs. Painting on-site.
    Easy and safe to relocate the Mural because the canvas can be taken off the wall and relocated if the homeowner moves.

    Eye-catching and appealing Murals on Canvas are being used in many Multi-million dollar homes, but the beauty of the paintings is that they are also affordable, not just by the Rich and Famous, but by others that are working within a budget.

    Ceiling paintings are being installed on 8 foot ceilings as well as 20+ feet and higher ceilings.

    The Ceiling Paintings on Canvas add to the character of the house and also add that personal touch too. Your clients will not feel bad if they have to move again, because at least they can take their paintings with them.

    Here’s an installation in which we shipped the paintings rolled in a tube to the client and their installers mounted the murals to the ceiling:

  • How to Clean an Oil Painting Recreation

    Carefully dust the surface with a very soft, dry bristle brush, such as a baby toothbrush or shaving cream brush. One of the steps is to carefully dust the surface with a very soft, dry bristle brush, such as a baby toothbrush or shaving cream brush.

    How to Clean an Oil Painting Recreation

    Many clients over the years have inquired about how to clean their oil painting recreations.  For recent oil painting reproductions, we have received many inquiries about how to clean dust, smoke and pet hair from paintings.  For these situations, check to make sure that the paint does not exhibit any cracking.  If all looks okay, then you can carefully dust the surface with a very soft, dry bristle brush, such as a baby toothbrush or shaving cream brush.

    If the surface is sticky, grimy, or oily, you may want to take the cleaning a step further and actually use an extremely mild detergent solution.  Generally speaking, oil and water should never mix, as moisture can damage both the canvas and the impasto. Proceeding with caution, use brand new cotton cloths dipped in a mixture of dish soap and warm water. Lightly blot the surface, but don't scrub, wipe, or rub the painting.  Be careful when cleaning so that moisture does not drip on the canvas.

    For the paintings in our personal collection, we have tried some unusual methods that have worked quite well for removing dirt from oil paintings. Amazing, but true, white bread seems to work. Ball up soft, sticky, doughy white bread and gently rub it against the canvas.  You will see the bread blacken like a pencil eraser and then you can gently brush off the crumbs. You also might try a low-suction vacuum with a brush nozzle. This should remove pet hair and dust balls in a deeply textured painting.

    If you have tried other methods that you would like to share, we would love to hear from you! www.bestpriceart.com is committed to creating Museum Quality Handmade Oil Painting Recreations.

    LIBERTY LEADING THE PEOPLE’ DELACROIX’S POWERFUL PAINTING OF ‘LIBERTY LEADING THE PEOPLE’

    Have you ever visited a museum and thought how awesome it would be to have an Original Old Master’s painting from a private collection hanging in your home? 

    Ever since my first visit to the Louvre, whenever I see a famous painting, the dream of having the museum artwork hanging in my home has always entered my mind.

    For generations, the works of Master Painters such as Da Vinci, Delacroix, Renoir and Grant Wood have been visited in art galleries, admired by millions and appreciated by art lovers for as long as we can remember. Unfortunately, it is not as easy to just sneak into the Musée d'Orsay and grab those masterpieces from where they hang and stride out with a painting tucked neatly under your arm.  If you could, you would have a beaming smile, splashed across your face knowing how wonderful the painting would look in your own décor.  We have all at one time thought about how wonderful it would be to own a painting that we saw in a world famous Museum.  I know I did when I first visited the Louvre Museum and saw Eugene Delacroix's painting "Liberty Leading the People". Although in it’s massive size at 102.4 “ × 128.0 “ (260 cm × 325 cm), I was not quite sure how the painting would fit through my front door, let alone fit on my wall.  Well maybe in the family room with the vaulted ceilings.  Now that was a great place for it.
