Terms of Business

Shipping costs for oilpaintings

Paintings are securely shipped at your expense. Customised rates are available.

Mounts & frames

The paintings are normally shipped without a frame.

Deposit / Payment

For contracts up to 400,-$ the invoice is payable with the order. For orders over 400,-$ a deposit of 50% is required. The balance will be paid after completion of the image due (see Order). In case you cancel the commission , you have to bear the costs for the work done by then. Minimum 300,-$.

Varnish for oilpaintings

Surface shine can be standard, gloss, mat or silkmat as requested.
Because oilpaintings dry slowly, varnish requires 12 months preparation and costs €200-600 dependent upon commission size. Varnish drying time is a further 2 months before commissions are shipped.

Tipps for a longer painting-life

Generally it is not advisable to expose the painting to direct sun light, humidity and high fluctuates of temperature.
