IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING MAKING A FINE ART PURCHASE:
Please take the time to read the following information CAREFULLY as it explains how these things are handled.
Shipping a painting, especially one that is of large size - is no small matter. Because of the nature of it, a lot of care has to go into packaging the piece for transport it will be photographed as it is packaged and photographs will be kept until the piece arrives to you.
Estimated time of arrival: Please allow two weeks for handling plus one week in transit. Shipping time is approximately 3-4 weeks.
Shipping paintings often incures charges that don’t get charged for smaller items. These can include an “oversize” charge which can cost as much as $25 or more on top of the regular shipping service charges. Because of this, I do not “upcharge” shipping (as a lot of companies do) by adding a percentage on top of charges. What I quote you is exactly what you will pay for shipping. For a limited time, ground shipping will be free, there is an option for overnight delivery, please contact me as this is an extra charge. Thank you.
This is highly recommended: this is an additional charge based solely on the price of the piece and it is up to you whether or not you would like to have the shipping company add it to the price.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR PAINTING:
Upon receipt and BEFORE you open the box, please inspect the package carefully!
If there is evidence of damage, please take photographs BEFORE you open the item. If there is any damage to the painting as a result of transport, the physical condition upon receipt will make it possible and easier to collect on the insurance policy. Shipping companies demand proof of damages.
Since the painting is photographed during the process of packaging - it is therefore documented BEFORE it ships. Take this part is taken very seriously, as people have paid hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars for these originals and I appreciate their willingness to purchase and display my artwork in their homes. Every attempt is made to insure the artwork is shipped in pristine condition.
