Frequently Asked Questions

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, contact me within 3 days of delivery, and ship items back within 14 days of delivery.
I accept Paypal only.
Shipping is determined by painting. Generally the paintings are sent via USPS. Cost is also factored individually. Please see the post of the painting you are interested in for details.
Will you customize your paintings?
All paintings are original paintings. These are not customizable.
Do you accept commissions?
At this point in time, I do not accept commissions.
Do you frame your art?
My paintings ship unframed. The paintings on stretched canvases do not need to be framed. Works on paper, unstretched canvas and panels are not framed. For the sake of your home decor, it is best to have a picture framed to your liking at your local frame shop.
Do you ship around the world?
Perhaps in the future. At this time, I ship my art via USPS in the continental United States only.
How long does it take you to paint a picture?
The beauty of my shop is that all of the paintings on display are ready to ship the next business day.
As for the process of creation, it depends on the complexity of the painting. All oil paintings take up to two weeks to cure after completion. Watercolors from inspiration to packaged for shipment are usually done within a week.
What paints do you use?
All of my paints are artists professional grade. They are archival and lightfast. For oil paints, I use Gamblin, which is an American company based in Portland, Oregon. For watercolors I use Daniel Smith, which is an American company in Seattle, Washington. I also use Winsor & Newton oils and watercolors. They are an English company, but the paints are now manufactured in France. For acrylics I use Golden Acrylics, which is an American company in New York.
Where do you get your ideas?
From years of studying philosophy, astronomy, symbology, mathematics, and the like. But sometimes, just playing with paints, or a humorous thought is all that is needed to inspire a painting.
Why is the color different from what I ordered?
Regrettably, no matter how much care goes into scanning a product, computers, tablets and cell phone monitors vary in color displays, and therefore will inevitably show you slightly different colors. I apologize for any inconvenience. If you truly do not like the painting, please contact me to arrange a return for an exchange or refund. Thank you for your time.
Do you sell prints?
Possibly in the future. At this time, I am unable to locate a respectable printing service.
