COA Certificate of Authenticity
our official seal,
endorsed in your name,
dated, numbered and signed
Although often sooner, please allow up to 30 days from the time your
payment clears for commissioning, painting, drying and quality assurance
and shipping. Occasionally this may need to be a little longer
depending on our workflow and the complexity of your project. Remember,
this painting is being created on a blank canvas for YOUR our valued
client. So, thank you for your patience and understanding.
Paintings carefully packed in a sturdy tube and shipped via EMS
(International Express Mail) or equivalent which provides
door-to-door tracking. Shipping, handling, and insurance is $69 for the
first painting and $20 for each additional painting, up to 3 paintings
per tube. Delivery is 7-10 days, occasionally a bit more or less
depending. Customs clearance may require a day or two longer.
We do not charge tax. Art
shipped to the U.S. is not subject to duty. Other countries will
vary on the amount of tax and duty and how aggressively they collect it.
It has been our experience that items valued at a few hundred dollars
are often ignored by Customs in most countries. However, you are
responsible for any duty and other taxes levied on your end.
Please contact your local authorities for more information.
Unframed : All of our art is sold
unframed. Unfortunately, shipping
charges for framed art are prohibitive. All of our art comes to you
unframed. However, these days most cities and towns have a range of
framers to choose from, and DIY (do it yourself) frame shops are becoming
popular providing a fun and inexpensive alternative.
are not really “bars”, but rather simple, unpainted wooden frames which the
canvas is pulled tautly around, and edges stapled to the frame. So the painting
is on the outside rather than the inside of the frame, thus the frame is
not visible looking at the painting.
This stretcher frame is often then mounted inside a larger, decorative frame.
Framing is a matter of personal taste and some owners prefer to hang
stretched art as-is without a decorative frame while others
prefer a decorative frame.
Both are acceptable choices depending upon the nature of the art, the
surroundings it hangs in, and
personal taste of the owner.
You may have your painting stretched and, if desired, framed at
a local frame shop in your neighborhood. If you enjoy working with your
hands, you might consider one of the popular "frame-it-yourself" type shops
which provide materials, tools and guidance at a great value compared to custom
framing. You might just discover a
We recommend that you do
not frame your painting behind glass.
Simple or ornate framing is a matter
of personal taste and is available in an enormous range of prices.
Extravagant framing can easily cost hundreds of dollars and more, and
there can be great variation in
pricing from shop-to-shop for equivalent frames, so it pays to shop around.
However, you should be able to have your painting stretched for less than
$100, and stretched and tastefully framed
for between $100-$200.
CARE FOR YOUR PAINTING
Your painting is
surprisingly durable.. As
long as common-sense care is
exercised, your art will require little attention
and remain fresh and
beautiful for a lifetime.
Proper care mostly involves
conditions to avoid, and common sense things
to do rather than any active
maintenance you must perform
SUN LIGHT :
Please do NOT expose your
painting to direct
sunlight! Even relatively
short exposures repeated over time, will noticeably
fade (and sometimes darken) colors.
ARTIFICIAL LIGHT : Avoid
unusually bright artificial indoor light.
Best to avoid
display lights which are
mounted directly to the frame or immediately over the painting. Diffused, low-intensity
spotlight from 10 feet
distance is ideal
HEAT and HUMIDITY : Avoid extremes, and fluctuations of heat and
temperatures of 70-75
and relative humidity of around 50%
Please display your painting in an environment as free as possible from
dirt, dust, cigarette smoke, and fireplace smoke.
Aside from the unsightly appearance, dirt also
serves as a host for mold growth and the absorption of pollutants and
INSECTS : Occasionally carpet beetles, and other insects will
sometimes roost in paintings.
If you notice any evidence of infestation, immediately place your art
work in a plastic bag and take to a local frame shop for
treatment. Do not use any
insecticides on the painting
DAMAGE : Any damage
your canvas may incur, such as tears or punctures should be repaired by a
available tapes and adhesives may have chemicals which will damage the art.
The same guidelines regarding light,
temperature, humidity, etc
which apply to displaying your
painting also apply to the
storage environment. You may
loosely cover your paintings with low-lint cloth such as an old sheet, but
please do not seal in plastic.
Sandwich your art between two flat pieces of cardboard or mat board, and
then wrap in bubble or Styrofoam wrap.
Avoid keeping wrapped for prolonged
periods to prevent moisture buildup.
: While it may sound
obvious, please handle your painting gently with care, and keep away form
sharp objects including buckles,
rings, watches and other jewelry.
Do not lean your painting against any object or surface with corners,
points, spurs or sharp edges.
VARNISH : You may
choose to varnish your painting in several
Varnishing may change the appearance of your painting, often brightening
colors improving general appearance.
It may also provide added protection..
This is personal decision and a matter of personal taste.
If interested, please discuss with a professional at your local frame
shop. Your painting may need
cleaning before varnishing, and again, let the professionals at the framers
do this for you.
CLEANING : Paintings may
be dusted regularly. Use
a soft, clean brush to gently
remove surface dust and dirt from the surface, back and frame.
However, real cleaning should be done only by an expert at your
local frame shop or gallery.
Never use any cleansers, detergents,
or other chemicals on your art.
If visible dirt remains after brush-cleaning, please
have the painting
cleaned professionally at your local frame shop.
these simple guidelines
will insure that your art remains fresh and beautiful for a lifetime
