The Old Painted Window by Jacquie Schwartz

Burlington, Vermont 0 Sales On Etsy since 2008

Announcement   I am fortunate to live on what for more than a hundred years was a working dairy farm located in a quiet rural area of Vermont away from the hurried pace of the city.

I am surrounded by many pets who still have the freedom to roam and explore. I love antiques, historic architecture and the history they represent. They tell of a simpler uncomplicated time.

With the modernization of many historic homes many of the old original windows have been lost for newer more efficient. These wonderful pieces of history are discarded and sent to the local landfill.

For every one that has been saved, I clean and restore it without removing the many layers of multi colored paint that has sometimes crackled from age over the years. This window with its many layers, panes and old glass is the focal part of my art. On the back I reverse paint primitive folk art scenes that depict an unhurried time.

My hope is when you view my world through this window you sense those earlier times and appreciate having saved a small piece of history.
