Frequently Asked Questions

*Lettering is free on all paintings if requested. (as long as it isn't an overabundance
of lettering, like a verse)
Q: Can I get a discount if I order several paintings?

A: Each hand painted piece of artwork is a timely project with material costs. These are
things that don't change on my end when a large order comes in. To give a discount
would mean a cut in my income.
HOWEVER, If you are ordering the same painting with a black background over and
over (example, show awards) I do offer discounts that are listed on the show award
pages or if you are a frequent buyer, now and then I may show my appreciation with a
discount or free shipping :)
Q: Will my Artwork arrive on time?

A: If you have a show or special occassion, ordering early is your
best bet. I like to get things in the mail at least week ahead of
time and I send everthing USPS 2~3 day priority.  I will have
tracking for your package and I will supply you with tracking
numbers. Please keep in mind that once I ship your package,
USPS travel time is out of my hands. All we can do is check
tracking and cross our fingers and toes until your package
arrives.
A: Yes.  Your payment confirms your order and allows me to
buy materials, especially for show awards. Pay Pal will provide
you with a reciept. If paying by check or money order a reciept
may be requested directly from me.

*Note: I do understand that sometimes it's hard to order ahead
and pay in full for show awards because money has to be
collected first. I'm extreemly flexable and will work with you.
This goes for personal custom orders too. Payments are an
option.
