- I run a SIG site - can I use your images?
Although I'm no longer affiliated with a company, I have no interest in SIG's at this time, so please do not use any of my images for such.
- I'm interested in buying one of your originals, but I don't want the frame - can I buy just the art?
Although we try to enhance the image to its fullest with the mats and frames on a few of the paintings,
we can negotiate a reduced price without them. Please write us with the painting you are interested in and we'll work something out.
- Are non-framed paintings' prices negotiable too?
We hope our prices are competitive and affordable, but we will try to accomodate reasonable offers.
Please write us with the painting you are interested in, and the price you are able to pay.
- Okay, what about prints and posters - can I get them for less too?
We cannot reduce the prices on individual prints or posters (but we do run sales often, so maybe check back for them).
If you wish to buy a large quantity, though, we can certainly offer a discount. Write us for details.
- Your store has a Paypal logo - can I buy if I don't have/want a Paypal account?
Yes. The Paypal gateway offers direct credit card sales.
- I don't have a Paypal account nor a credit card - can I pay by check?
At this time, we cannot accept checks, sorry.
- What is Gouache?
Gouache (pronounced gwash) is an opaque watercolor paint. It dries quickly, leaving a matte finish, but can be easily reworked with water.
- Do you work digitally?
All original artwork is done by hand. Designing of the imagery and transferring the images to the web are done through Photoshop.
- Do you use an airbrush?
Unless noted by the painting, the only use of airbrush currently is for backgrounds.
- Most of your art says the medium is 'mixed' - what does that mean?
For nearly every piece I've done since 2007, my method involves a variety of mediums. These include acrylic paint (mostly used with the airbrushed backgrounds), gouache and watercolors, and also colored pencils and oil pastels. For more detail on my technique, please read my blog.
Print papers explained
The most common paper, this finish is flat, with very little sheen. Images are very clean and crisp, with vibrant colors.
Our newest paper (May, 2010), this paper is textured much like traditional watercolor paper. Colors are bright, and the texture gives the feel of an original piece of art.
Using real canvas fabric, it is coated to bring out the most in the colors and details of the image. Like watercolor paper, it gives the feeling of an original piece of art. It is backed with card stock for easier framing.
Only available currently on the large (13x19") prints, this paper has a beautiful sheen to it. Clarity is great, and the colors jump out in perfect representation of the original art.
