    I have an oil painting by the Baja artist Paco Garcia that I would like to have cleaned. Can you provide an estimate of cost? Thank you in advance for the help.

    Mr. Adams,
    I apologize for the late reply. For an estimate on the cleaning I need to see the painting in person or detailed pictures of it, with exact mesuraments.
    Please reply by email to:
    Thank you,
    Ardenia Capannelli

  5. Robbie Monsma says:

    Have 4 oils and cheap but beloved panel=copy. All subject to years of smoke and best piece is flaking. Will send photos if you can estimate from that. Thanks.

  6. Ardenia says:

    I will be able to give you a close estimate only upon seing the items in person. If you want a general estimate please send detail pics and size of the items.
    Thank you,
    Ardenia Capannelli

    I would like to make an appointment to get an estimate for a large oil painting which needs to be cleaned, and repositioned within its original frame. Do you also do appraisals? We need an appraisal for insurance and shipping. Could you email me your available times this week starting April 13, 2014?

    I just picked up my painting of the Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus…
    Ardenia was so gentle and took great care to restore my painting to its full glory.
    I was unaware of its true age and she helped educate me on what I was in possession of having no idea it was 300 years old.
    After the cleaning it revealed that it was originally painted in a oval.
    The Colors pop out and 300 years of grime is gone.
    She re varnished it and it is good to go for another 300 years.
    Thank you for the great care you took in the restoration.
    You are Very talented, A hidden Gem.
    I have another piece waiting for you and will be back soon.
    I would recommend her to anyone her talents are superb.
    Very well trained and it shows.
    Thank you Ardenia

  9. Sue Hunt says:

    I have a large pastoral oil painting that I inherited from my parents. I believe they in turn got it from their family. The painting needs cleaning and the frame has some pieces that have broken off. I have pieces but am not sure I have them all.
    Will you come to see the work to give an estimate or do I need to bring it to you?

  10. Jean Cory says:

    We no longer allow smoking in our house but have a beloved painting that has been subject to 15 years of smoke. We would like to have it cleaned. I don’t know how to tell if it’s oil or acrylic. I am in Orange County most Saturdays and could bring it if we pre arrange a date.

  11. Ardenia says:

    Kindly email me at to schedule an appointment. Thank you.

  12. Ardenia says:

    That you so much David Armstrong for the kind words. I enjoyed very much cleaning your painting. I bet that, now that it is back in its gorgeous frame, it looks fantastic. Thanks again for the opportunity to do business with you. Ardenia
