My oil paintings are made with the finest oil colors available on either linen or cotton canvas of the highest quality. They are varnished with high quality UV protective varnish after drying for 6-12 months to provide excellent protection against dust and ultraviolet light. The paintings are backed with a protective acid-free board that provides protection for their backside. Each painting is delivered in a protective storage bag together with a certificate of authenticity and a handling and care instruction.
Miniature Oil Paintings
These little jewels created as studies for my larger oil paintings are made with the finest oil colors on cotton canvas. They are backed with a protective acid-free board that provides protection for their backside.
Framing of Oil Paintings
All my paintings are painted on their edges to create a natural framing effect and are ready to hang with no additional framing. If additional framing is desired, I recommend the use of floater frames. They do not touch any part of the front surface of the painting and leave the intended composition of the work unchanged. I will be happy to work together with on your framing needs, and I can provide a wide variety of frames at competitive prices. Please contact me to discuss your framing needs.

The Note Cards are miniature giclées that are mounted on elegant acid-free folding note card stock. A high quality envelope is provided with each note card.
Handling, Storage and Display
Like any work of art, oil paintings and prints should be handled with care. The surface of an artwork is delicate and care should be taken to avoid touching it.
Store paintings with protective cloth in the protective storage bag at all times when not on display. Store prints with mat and interleaving sheet in the protective storage bag at all times when not on display.
When hung on the wall for display prints should always be with their mat and framed under glass. UV protective glass is recommended for added image longevity. The paintings have similar or better protection through the UV protective varnish applied to the painting. Exposure to direct sunlight should always be avoided as light with strong UV content is damaging to all works of art and especially to works on paper.
