PURCHASING A PAINTING
1. Please select a painting and contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss price, payment methods and shipping. Payment is made through PayPal or by personal check. PayPal is one of the most secure and trusted online payment solutions on the internet. PayPal takes most any form of credit card payment and is my preference for payment.
2. Once the funds clear, shipment of your art will be the next business day. Note: Personal checks will delay the order for 3-5 business days.
3. Multiple payments: 3 equal payments are acceptable within a 3 month period. I will hold the painting until final payment clears. Late payments of more than 7 days after due date, all previous money paid in will not be refunded and the art goes back into my inventory.
4. Pricing: My work is charged by the linear inch. I do not publish my prices on the internet as there are always going to be some paintings that take more time to paint than others. To keep it simple, I price each painting by the linear inch method first and then adjust for variables, such as adding a frame or by the complexity of the work for an example. Most people prefer to frame their own art, so my prices are first based on unframed works. Prices start at $60, with most work within a mid-range price point. An 11×14 painting will be in the $300 range as an example.

Small unframed paintings are shipped in Flat Rate USPS Priority Mail boxes. Each painting is insured. USPS generally takes 2-3 days (domestic). Larger paintings must be weighed after packaging to estimate shipping costs. Shipping costs vary depending on the size, weight and destination. Most larger sizes like 18×24, 16×20 can be shipped for under $60. Once you have selected a painting to purchase, please email me your address to determine the costs. I can then ship via USPS or more expensive methods like UPS or FedX. Orders are packaged with the utmost care so damage is very rare. But if it should happen, you must contact me within 3 days of the order. Damaged items will be handled on a case by case basis. International orders will take at least 2-10 weeks after shipping.
PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE PAINTINGS ON MY SITE
To photograph my paintings, I use a Sony digital camera first and then Photoshop to crop, edit and render the photo as close as possible to my original painting. As a professional graphic designer for over 22 years, I am an expert in photoshop and photographic editing.
The artwork is first carefully photographed without reflections. I take several shots to be safe and spend an enormous amount of time color correcting to match the original. The images here are all high resolution, so every brushstroke is visible. Click on the paintings and they will enlarge to see all these details.
All my work is backed by a 100% money back guarantee. If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your painting, you may return it for a full refund minus any shipping costs and PayPal fees. The artwork must be in the same condition it was when it was shipped out to you. Artwork must be returned within 15 days to guarantee this refund.
