Frequently asked questions
Can you paint from photographs?
Yes, I often paint from photographs. The more photographs you have from different angles the better, but not necessary.
How long does it take to complete a painting?
It depends on the size and complexity of the piece. It could take anywhere from a few day to 3 or 4 weeks. Oil paint takes a day to a week to dry as well so I need to factor that into the turn around time.
Do you frame your work?
All of my prices listed under each piece in the Gallery include the hardware on the back of the painting so that it is ready to hang. Some of my competed pieces are framed, and some are a thick canvas with the image continued around the edge. However, all pieces can be framed if you prefer. I can work with a professional framer; or if you would rather a less expensive option, I can take the painting to AC Moore or Michaels with a coupon and choose a pre-made frame that accentuates the painting according to your wishes.
How do I pay if you have to ship the painting to me?
I accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and Apple Square
