How do I paint and what mediums do you use?
I paint using Rembrandt and Gamblin brand oil and watercolor paints. How I paint depends on the subject, but I usually am somewhere between impressionistic and realistic styles.
Is there a place I can go to see your art for sale?
Do you ship them? How much is shipping?
I do ship my art, I ship to most countries. Each piece has a different size and will cost a different amount to ship. Most smaller paintings I ship through USPS, larger ones are handled by UPS. If you live outside of The United States contact me for a shipping quote.
Are they ready to hang on the wall?
They do not ship with frames, I can arrange to have one installed for a cost, which can be discussed at the time of purchase. An alternative is you could have a framer you work with install a frame for you. I can also recommend a frame, all of these can be discussed at the time of purchase.
I’m not sure how this will look in my home.
If you are relatively local to Boston I’m happy to come to your home with the painting to discuss how it will match your decor. Also if you send me a photo of your wall space I can arrange the artwork using software so you can see how it would look.
I love your art and want one in my house but it’s a little out of my price range. Do you do payment plans?
I understand and do offer payment plans. They are from 2 to 4 months and I will ship the painting when the last payment has been made.
I’d love to have a painting of my daughter (or son, dog, house, horse, etc), do you do commission work?
I do paint commission paintings, the time of completion can be from three to five weeks and will ship when dry. Please note I will not be able to accept all commissions. A 50% initial deposit is required and the remaining amount due on completion. I do payment plans for these as well.
How do you decide what you will paint?
It’s generally something that grabs my attention. A tree growing a certain way, a building with uncommon features, a vase that I find interesting. It must generate curiosity in me, I’ll have to look at something for anywhere from one to thirty hours to paint it. Fortunately there are more things I find fascinating than I have time to paint!
