FAQ / POLICY
These are some of the questions I get asked. If you have any additional questions, feel free to email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I view the artwork? All artworks are located in the gallery, which is in Cedarhurst NY. Viewings are by appointment only. Email email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
Are you located in Israel? We are located in Cedarhurst, NY.
Difference of prints? The way I reproduce my art is as follows. I take the artwork to my printer and they remove it from its wooden base to be scanned. This way the resolution is second to none and the print quality is perfect. There are two options that the reproduction can be printed on.
OPTION ONE: GICLEE - A semi-original / stretched canvas giclee - This appeals to many since I paint on top of the majority of the canvas (not just a few strokes here and there) making it look and feel original. Each one is worked upon for hours and no two strokes are the same, which results in each one being specially unique. Also, the canvas is thick, so even though it can be framed, it doesn’t need to be.
This is shipped in a custom box ensuring the security of the artwork. If it is shipping overseas, the giclee is taken off the stretcher bar and shipped rolled.
OPTION TWO: PRINT - A digital print - This is a reproduction on 10 ML acid-free specialty art paper. This appeals to many since the quality of the scan comes across so strongly on the paper, that the viewer can see each and every bump from the original canvas. It’s less costly than a giclee.
The digital print does need to be framed, as the ink on the print, is sensitive and must be protected. It can be covered with glass, or our framer shellacs the print, ( a clear veneer) which gives it a beautiful original feel. A Digital print does not come framed. We offer custom framing, if one would like. This way, it arrives ready to hang. It is shipped in a custom made box to insure the frame. Framing is a separate cost from the print.
If you don't frame, the print arrives rolled in a tube.
See video below for full explanation of each.

Copyright? All my work is copyrighted, and can not be reproduced without my written consent.
Can I commission a painting? Right now, I’m not taking on any commissions.
How long does my artwork take to arrive? Every Digital Print is made with you in mind, and they are made to order. Please allow two weeks for production and shipping. Semi-Original Giclees require more time due to the customized painting that is added on top of the canvas. They can take up to three weeks to ship.
Can I pick up my art instead of shipped? Of course you can.
Do the paintings come framed? They can be! If you'd like custom framing, we can work with you based on style, space and decor. The framing is done by a 3rd party* and is a separate cost.
To frame or not to frame? I always say - frame. It elevates the painting so much. As for what color to go with? It all depends on your space. Feel free to email me with specific space questions and it’s always my pleasure to guide you. Your framer can do so as well.
And where to go for framing? *I work with a framer who offers my customers special pricing, so feel free to contact me for his information.

THE FRAMING PROCESS
If you'd like to custom frame your artwork, you simply state that in the comment section at checkout and write the color tones that you'd like. Then when the print is in , we take it to the framer and pick out the best suitable frames, based on our eye and your decor.
We then snap images for you. Very detailed so that you can get the full picture. We sent it via text or emial, or if you'd prefer - Facetime.
Once you see all the frame options, you simply tell us which is your favorite and it's done! If you'd like to see even more options, we can send you more... Your satisfaction is our number one priority since you will be looking at the artwork every day...we want it to be perfect!
