Besutiful Handpainted Picture

I picked up this beautiful what appears to be a hand painted picture of a doe and fawn before Christmas on a junk stall on the market. Total outlay £2.  The overmount has watermark damage.  The picture is painted on the same fabric.  I am not sure whether it is silk or not.  I absolutely love this picture and wondered whether any of you have any ideas about how I should go about this.  Its too good a quality to be destined for the bin.  Any ideas/suggedtions would be gratefully received.

Look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Could you remove it from the overmount and display it stretched inside a circular embroidery frame? Or does it need to be behind glass?

  2. Hi Angela I could potentially remove the overframe but only as a last resort. There is an oval overframe i. The same fabric as the picture is painted on but I think would be too fragile not to be mounted behind glass. It came in a substantial frame. X


Thank you for popping by. I love to receive comments and to make new friends so please say Hi. Pattypan
