I would return the money paid for any Original Paintings if you dislike it after you have received it. I will ask you to pay for the return postage though. The refunding will happen when I receive the painting back in good condition.

Verified Archival Materials Used
The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.
Description from Merchant:
I like to paint in oil on stretched linen or prepared papers.
For paper: I cover the paper with a coat of rabbit skin glue with dry pigments in it to make it impermeable to oil. I used Archival papers, Arches (hot pressed)300 or 150lb.
En plein air I also use boards that I prime myself with a home made gesso (French chalk from Champagne with rabbit skin glue) but most often now I use paper (Arches).
Successful sketches are glued on exterior birch plywood. I use Rabbit skin glue.
For the stretched canvases, I prepare my own grounds. I order the stretchers from an Art supplier, Blick/Utrecht, I favor aluminum stretchers for large canvases since they are lighter than wood. The linen I favor is 74B. I prime the stretched linen with a chalk/oil gesso from a formula that was used by the old masters. It offers a wonderful surface that feels like ivory and makes the paint flows beautifully. However, that surface is delicate, therefore, I also often use an acrylic gesso ( Utrecht) that is a lot more flexible and less prone to cracks but requires a lot more build up, "work", unlike the gesso ground or the smooth paper surface.
For my drawings I use Sennelier inks that I order from France. Black and also Broux de noix.
for my "mixed media" work I use acrylics, Sennelier pastels and inks (and all sorts of other stuff I find in the studio) on hot press Arches papers.
For updates on my new work and special events, please join my mailing list. I hate spams, I will not share your email. Thank you.
