Color and Design

Everyone longs for beauty in their home and everyday living. Beautiful color and design can fill that need easily, and that’s what MadAboutHue is all about. My paintings and prints are designed to coordinate with one another. Each individual painting is composed to look stunning alone as well as grouped with its collection. Purchase a collection together for a sure-fire knockout presentation, or collect and arrange your favorites from a color series to make a design statement all your own.

Frequently asked questions

How long will my painting last?

By following a few simple rules of preservation and care, you and your family can enjoy a painting for generations. A painting’s beauty can endure for centuries which is why it’s a wonderful investment.

Care instructions

Painting’s will require an occasional dusting. Use a soft, clean micro fiber cloth or a very soft, clean brush set aside for this purpose. Dust the surface with a very careful, light touch to avoid scratching.

Protect your painting from extreme temperatures, temperature changes, and moisture which can all cause the paint to crack. Do not hang a painting in direct sunlight or store it in extreme darkness. Avoid hanging your painting near air conditioning vents, doors and windows, fireplaces, and in bathrooms.

Paintings need good clean air. Do not allow exposure from pollutants or smoke from any source including cigarettes, fireplaces, or candles. Do not allow the painted surface to be touched by fingers.

How and When to varnish an oil painting

For a painting to looks its best, it requires a varnishing 9 months to a year after its creation when it has dried completely. I give my paintings a preliminary varnishing with retouch varnish to bring out the colors, but this is not a final varnish. A year after purchase if you start to notice the colors have faded somewhat, remove the painting from its frame and varnish it with a glossy, non-yellowing, oil painting varnish. I like to use Grumbacher varnish in a spray can and follow the instructions on the label.
