All original artworks are shipped unframed, carefully and professionally packaged in acid-free materials. Depending on a size, it may be packaged in a tube or flat in a hard lined and padded cardboard.
Unless specified by a buyer, a painting will be shipped by standard registered mail.
An upgrade to UPS/FedEx shipping cost US$60 and up depending on a size and weight of a package. Normally, for a watercolor painting the weight does not exceed 0.5kg, but for a canvas it may be more, depending of a size.
Please provide your full address and a telephone number (required by the carrier services). After shipping, I will give you a tracking number to track your package.
I will ship an artwork within 2-3 business days upon receiving a payment.
Please note that any customs charges or local taxes that may occur are the buyer’s responsibility.
How to Commission
Would you like to have an original painting created exclusively for you? A lovely view from your vacation, a portrait of someone loved, your father's house or Mom's favorite flowers?
I gladly accept commissions. Please, contact me with your idea, include a photo that you'd like to have painted, the size of an unframed artwork and the desired timeframe. Send me an e-mail at email@example.com which I will promptly respond.
Note: Usually a custom painting may be ready to ship within 3-4 days, however sometimes it may take longer if I have a few orders ongoing.
I will start working on your painting upon agreeing all of the above detailes, a method of shipping, etc and receiving a full payment confirmation. I will show you a photo of a preliminary sketch for your review and approval. After finishing the work, I will send you close-up photos of an artwork. If you like the result, I will ship the original to you by registered mail or FedEx/UPS, whichever you have indicated as a preferred method of shipping and paid for.
In case you are not fully satisfied with a photo of an artwork I have painted, I may correct it or re-paint it. If it still doesn’t match your expectations, I will refund the amount minus 30% for my time and efforts.
To make it as less confusing as possible, I set a standard price for the commissioned artwork regardless of its complexity as US$1.00 per square inch of an unframed artwork. For example, a 12 x 16 inches artwork equals 192. So that’s the price in USD. Shipping is not included.
Return and Refund Policy:
I am willing to fully refund the price I received for the artwork if for whatever reason it has not matched a buyer’s expectations* or in case a purchased artwork was lost en route, or arrived in a damaged condition.
In case you have received your artwork but for whatever reason you do not like it, I will accept a return if you ship it back undamaged and carefully packaged within 7 days after you have received it. I will refund the price of an artwork upon receiving it back. The return shipping charges are not covered.
* Returns or refunds of custom-ordered paintings that were shipped after the final approval of the photos by a buyer are not accepted.
