Only professional grade acrylic paints and mediums are used to ensure the highest quality while premium acrylic varnish protects the artwork against UV rays and dust. The paintings are on gallery wrapped canvasses supported by 1.5” solid wood stretcher bars and bear my signature on the canvas back. As the staple-free sides are painted for a finished look, no frames are necessary. Each painting has mounting hardware already attached and is ready to hang.
While the digital images of the artwork are accurate, varying monitors and setups may alter the color veracity.

Care of Artwork, Hanging and Storage Tips
From Constance Smith’s Art Marketing 101. A Handbook for the Fine Artist, 3rd ed. (ArtNetwork, 2007):
To transport, put in a plastic bag, then wrap with padding for protection (sheets, towel, blanket). Plastic first because fibers and lint from fabric can stick to varnish.
Do not place anything on surface of painting.
Do not leave in a hot car, especially in the trunk, as varnish can blister.
In the case of a painting on a canvas, be careful not to lean the painting against anything sharp (corner of table, chair, etc.) that could cause denting, stretching or tearing of canvas fibers.
Do not hang in direct sunlight.
Do not hang over a direct heat source – radiators, vents or too near a fireplace, smoke, ashes and heat damage artwork.
Try not to hang in an excessively damp or cold location.
Never put water on the surface of any painting.
Try not to touch the surface of painting – oil marks from fingers are sometimes difficult to remove.
If necessary, dust with a clean, dry, soft brush.
