If you decide to purchase an original or print, you can do so with the knowledge that the artist offers a full refund if you are in any way unsatisfied with the art.

Original art prices are listed under each painting. Most originals are nicely framed, and, if a watercolor, both matted and framed with a plexiglass cover. However, not all paintings come with a frame, so the artist will be sure to inform you about the framing. If the painting comes with a frame, and you decide you'd rather receive it unframed, you can and get a reduced price. Paintings that say “in private collection,” the painting has already sold.
