Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you only have one painting for sale on your online store?

All my paintings are one of a kind. I will do a series where they are similar but no two paintings are completely alike. Because of this, it is difficult to have a "shopping cart experience" with my work. The purchase price is totally dependent on size, value and shipping address.

But I like to feature one small painting that customers can buy online directly with shipping included. You can view it on the Featured Artwork page. Once it has sold, I will post another.

Why do I have to contact you if I find something else that I want to buy?

Because I have to know the shipping address to find you the best shipping price. The boxes and paintings are all different sizes and weights.

How do I pay you if this is not done on your online store?

Once we have a purchase and shipping price established, you can either pay through my account at PayPal or we can speak on the phone and I can take your VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS or DISCOVER card and enter it manually in my card reader. I will give you all the PayPal link and phone number at the time of the sale.

Do you create all the artwork yourself?

Yes, I work totally alone on my paintings and on the painted/grained boxes. I do not make the boxes, I decorate them in the same way that I do not make the canvas, I paint on it. Everything is created here in my Maryland studio.

Do you do special commissions?

Sometimes. It is difficult to envision another's vision. I have done commissions with clients that have purchased my work in the past and understand my style of painting. All commissions are paid in advance and not returnable.
