Are the originals and limited editions ready to hang?

Some of the originals and limited editions have frames and others do not. The canvas comes already stretched over wooden canvas stretcher bars. I paint around the edges so they can be hung without a frame. The large paintings that are framed, come with a wooden cleat attached to the frame and the other wooden piece attaches to the wall, for seamless hanging. All the paintings without frames come with hangers already attached and a wall hook is included. Frames are not included unless specified in the description and they are all optional.

Will you refund if I am not satisfied?

I am sure you will love your new painting and enjoy it for many years to come. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied, please return it within 30 days, in its original condition, in its original packaging and upon receipt, I will refund your purchase price.

What is a limited edition Giclee?

The number of limited editions is carefully chosen and no more can be created after they are all sold. Of course, this does make limited edition prints more valuable in the eyes of a collector, so artists are able to charge more for this type of print. The size of my limited editions vary between 5, 25 and 50. They are signed and numbered and as with my originals, they come with a Certificate of Authenticity..

Do you take commissions?

What is a hand-embellished Giclée?

The giclée printing process provides superior color accuracy compared to other reproduction methods. My giclées are professionally scanned by a museum quality high resolution scanner and printed out on archival canvas with archival inks. I hand-embellish the giclée to give its smooth surface some texture to make an identical replica of the original painting. I finish by gloss varnishing the entire surface to make it sparkle.

Will the giclées fade with time?

The archival inks are designed to resist fading and the chemical composition, allowing the ink to hold fast to the printed surface. Giclée printing tends to hold its colors for far longer than standard prints. In fact, giclée prints are thought to last up to two hundred years before starting to fade. With giclée printing, you won’t have to worry about fading or discoloration at all.

How long to deliver the painting?

As soon as your painting is shipped you will receive a tracking number and you can always find out where it is.
