Purchase Information & Other Nitty-Gritty
Gouache: My gouache work is painted on 140 lb Arches watercolor paper and all are matted showing a deckled edge within a hand-cut floating matte. My smaller work is finished in versatile "table-top or wall-hang" wooden frames. Larger pieces are framed simply in "graphite" colored metal frames. If a customer prefers a different frame, I'll either make that change or sell the work without the frame.
Acrylic: My acrylics are painted on gesso or clay boards. Some are framed in unstained wooden float frames with black inset; some are unframed. Many of my acrylics are painted on Ampersand "gessobord" with a 3/4" cradle, and can be framed, or hung as they are. I paint the image around the 1" edge of these pieces, so there is a greater sense of depth as the viewer passes the painting, so I prefer float-frames, rather than frames that cover the edges and part of the image. However, if you are passionate about having a frame, we can make that happen.
Commissions: While each painting is a one-of-a-kind original, I'm often willing to paint a piece again (in some cases, again and again and again!) So if a piece has been sold, and you'd like me to revisit it, just ask. There's a good chance we can work something out.
Upon request, I'm also willing to work from photographs you provide, if there's a special scene you're interested in having me paint.
Pricing: Painting prices usually range from $150 to $1400. Please contact me if you are interested in a specific piece or particular size. Notecards and hand-made journals are priced as marked.
