Frequently Asked Questions
How can I purchase one of your original paintings?
If you live in the Northeast United States or are visiting the area you are welcome to visit the studio to meet and view paintings. Great Barrington is two and half hours from New York City and Boston. Please contact me to set up a visit. If you are unable to visit we can communicate via phone or email about possibilities for you to acquire a work for your collection or a client.
What if I would like to commission a work that is a particular size, color palette or in an earlier style?
I would be happy to design a work around your specifications. Get in touch and we can start the design process.
Do you have experience creating large scale art work for public spaces?
Yes, I have completed large scale projects for the Minneapolis Public Library (a 30’ x 16’ conical ceiling painting), the Minnesota of Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (30’ x 8’ wall mural) and the State of Minnesota (4’ x 24’ wood panel mural).
Are giclée prints of your paintings available for sale?
Yes, limited edition signed giclée prints with certificate of authentication are available in various sizes. Please contact me for more information.
Is every painting unique?
Every painting is one of a kind. Each painting in a series represents an individual vision based around the theme of the series.
What materials are used in the paintings?
All of the paintings, drawings and prints are made with the finest archival materials. Daniel Smith oil paint and Gamblin galkyd mediums are the main ingredients in the paintings.
Does the work need to be framed?
The paintings on wood stretchers do not necessarily need to be framed. Some people like to leave the natural edges of the canvas to show the painting process. If you do decide to frame a stretched piece, I recommend a simple “breather” frame. All the works on paper or film should be framed. I am happy to give you recommendations about framing. Please contact me if you have questions.
What if I don’t like the painting once it arrives?
If you have any problems please contact me immediately when the work arrives. The works are photographed as realistically as possible. But a painting always is experienced differently in person. If you are unhappy with a piece, you have 14 days from the day it arrives to let me know that you want to return the work. All I ask is that you pay for shipping costs to and from your location. Returns must be packed properly and fully insured. Your funds will be refunded when the piece is returned safely. Prints are not returnable. Contact me for details.
