The artist handles his work personally and represents himself. By contacting the artist through the "Contact" page and stating your interest, you will be informed of all specifications and even the most minor of details about the work you are interested in, and then you can decide whether to make an offer or not. Whether you are a collector interested in any of the paintings or if you are the owner of an art gallery and you would like to exhibit the artist's work, contact the artist and he will gladly provide you with any information you need to know. Also you may arrange to come in contact with the artist either by phone, or if you wish and is convenient, depending on where you are situated, arrange a personal meeting to answer any questions you may have in person.
It means that the paintings have no pre-determined price tags on them...they are the artists personal collection and they resident in his own home. The artist only accepts offers based on your own evaluation of his work and refuses to place a fix price on them. If you have an offer to make, the artist will either accept it or reject it. If he accepts the offer, then the painting is yours, and will not accept any other offers for the specific painting, even if they are of a higher value. The artist does not engage in bidding wars in any way. If the painting is still available, that means that no offer has yet been accepted by the artist.
If a painting has a SOLD notification, that means that the artist has already accepted an offer for the specific painting and is no longer its owner. The Paintings page operates as a personal gallery and portfolio of the artist's full body of work, past and present. Whether you can still acquire a painting that has already been sold by the artist, depends entirely on the new owner. Whenever an offer is accepted, the artist asks the new owner if he would like to give his contact information to anyone else that might be interested in the same painting in the future. But the artist will not get involved in any way, other than to pass down the contact information of the present owner to the interested individual, if in fact that information is available.
Yes, after you have acquired a painting and within 30 days of it's purchase, if for any reason you are not satisfied, you can contact the artist and notify him that you wish to return the painting and get your money back. The artist guarantees the quality of his work and handles all matters personally with absolute professionalism. But if for any reason you are not happy, once the painting is safely returned and is in the condition that the artist has sent it, then the artist will return the money to your bank account. The artist will refund the exact amount of purchase, but not the shipping costs to return it. If more than 30 days have passed since you purchased the painting, then no refund will be accepted.
You never provide any credit card information at any point when your offer is accepted. Therefore you are in absolutely no danger. When an offer is accepted, a contract is made between you and the artist, stating all the details of the agreement. Then the artist will provide you with a bank account number in which you will personally deposit the amount agreed upon. After the payment is received you will get your on-line receipt and the artist will send you the painting, with all shipping,handling and insurance arranged personally by the artist.
The artist uses his identity for all legal actions concerning his work. Once an offer has been accepted, a contract will be sent to you with all the terms of your agreement, including of course, the artists name and full contact information. Therefore if you decide to continue with the purchase of the painting, you will know exactly who you are dealing with before the transaction even begins
