What to Expect
After I receive payment and reference pictures, I start working on your painting. This means that I cannot offer refunds once I have started your painting but I will be in touch through email to show you progress pictures and the final proof before shipping off your painting.
I use recycled cardboard to carefully protect and package your painting.
P.S. Many people have cried when they received their orders. Have tissues nearby.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you offer framing services?
A: At the current time, I am only able to frame orders for local customers living in the Raleigh area.
Q: What size frame should I purchase for the custom painting?
A: The custom watercolor paintings look best, in my opinion, in frames that are sized for 11 inch by 14 inch pictures and matted to 8 inch by 10 inch. Be sure to look for an acid-free mat to maintain the longevity of your art piece. If you need suggestions on locations to purchase frames, please email me.
Q: How long will my painting last?
A: Watercolor paintings can maintain their vibrancy for hundreds of years if they are completed on acid-free paper with high quality pigments and kept out of direct sunlight. I've handled part of that for you - I only use the highest quality 100% cotton rag paper with either Windsor & Newton or Sennelier paints. When framing, look for mats that are acid free, and remember that direct sunlight over time can break down the pigments in the paint.
