Why should I purchase a painting online without seeing it in person?
While we try to provide the absolute best image possible, each monitor, tablet or phone is different. It is important to know that if you are not completely happy with the painting, we will fund 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, we 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.
Does Kent accept commission requests?
Generally no. He finds them to be more "work" than pleasure "because I'm not creating art from inspiration. I feel like there is a self-imposed pressure that usually results in paintings that I'm not as happy with. And if you're not happy, I'm not happy."
What materials does Kent use?
Kent's paintings are meant to last a lifetime and beyond so he uses only the finest archival materials. With oils, if drying-time allows, each painting is protected with a layer of Gamsol varnish.
