Service for locations within the United States:

  • Priority – includes $47 insurance, tracking, 4-5 day delivery

Service for locations outside of the United States:

  • 1st Class – no insurance, tracking to the border, 6-10 day delivery
  • Priority Express – includes $200 insurance, tracking, 3-5 day delivery

International shipments can only be tracked to the border of the destination country. VERY FEW packages actually get lost in the mail and we find USPS 1st Class is the best affordable choice for international shipping. With that in mind, we do not take any responsibility if somehow it does get lost.

The fastest method and most secure way is USPS Priority Express Mail which includes tracking , signature for delivery, $200 insurance and usually takes 3-5 days.

The artwork is not simply an acrylic painting on a panel. A plaster base is first applied to a panel. When the plaster base is dried, it can be carved and etched into which gives it depth and a slightly sculptural surface. This creates an added richness and a tactile surface unique to the painting. The lines are irregular, the plaster surface is not completely smooth, giving it a more organic, hands on appearance. Acrylic paints and other mediums are then applied on the top surface to complete the painting. A layer of varnish seals and protects the unique piece of art.

Though durable, they still should be handled with care and wiped with a clean cloth when need be.
