Will a painting on stone last?
Here is an 11,000 year old cave paintings in Somaliland, the oldest in Africa.
High quality oil paintings on canvas are held in high esteem because they last through generations. I'm sometimes asked if my paintings on stone will last. Mine are on archivally treated and sealed stone, painted with fine oil paints, sealed again and varnished. Ancient cave paintings were done with various pigments, unsealed and subject to climate variations. I wonder what folks will think of mine in 11,000 years. Hmmm.
