Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I purchase a painting online without seeing it in person?
While I try to provide the absolute best image I can for you to make your decision, each monitor, tablet or phone is different. My best answer is to let you know that if you are not completely happy with the painting you receive I will refund your money provided that you return the painting in the exact same condition as you received it. The good news here is that paintings almost always look better in person. To date, I have never had one returned. 


How do I purchase a painting?

If you find a piece you want to purchase in the "Portfolios" section, just click on the image and you will be directed to its individual details page. There you will find the pricing and a link to pay via PayPal. Newer paintings, or those that are committed to shows or galleries will have a link to our purchase inquiry page, with a form to fill out and submit. Once we receive the inquiry, you will be contacted via email with the paintings status and additional instructions.


Do you accept commission requests?

Generally no. I find them to be more "work" than pleasure because I'm not creating art from inspiration. There just seems to be a self-imposed pressure that usually results in paintings that I'm not as happy with. And I want my buyers to be happy.


What materials do you use?

My paintings are meant to last a lifetime and beyond so I use only the finest archival materials. With oils, if drying-time allows, I protect them with a layer of varnish.
