Frequently Asked Questions:

What media do you normally use?

I use only the highest quality paints, panels, canvases, paper, inks, and cloth (museum quality):

  • Oil paintings are oil on linen panel or oil on canvas and some of my larger format oil paintings are oil over mixed media on canvas.
  • MODERN Series paintings are oil and acrylic on canvas.
  • All giclées are signed and numbered limited edition prints of my original artwork (normally watercolor) using the highest quality professional inks on the finest acid-free, archival paper.
  • My tea towels are 100% linen or 100% cotton of the best quality, all made entirely here in the U.S.–including the printing and the cloth–from original watercolor artworks that I have designed and painted.

All artwork that you see on this site are my original works.

What is your return policy?

If you are ever dissatisfied with anything bought through my website please simply return it to me within seven days of receipt for a full refund.

How do you ship your merchandise?

Everything sold through my website is securely packaged by hand for direct shipment from my studio to you.  For deliveries in the United States we normally use U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail and Standard Mail.  For international deliveries we normally use U.S. Postal Service First Class Mail.  Based on our experience your package should typically arrive within 7 – 10 days.

Where can I buy your tea towels and prints?

You can buy gifts such as tea towels and prints directly from my website by clicking Tea Towels or Prints under the Gifts & Prints tab or the Shop tab.  You may also find my tea towels and prints in select retail outlets throughout the Washington DC area.

Where can I view and buy your paintings?

You can see all of my oil paintings and MODERN Series paintings in chronological order in the Oil Painting Gallery and MODERN Series Gallery, and any paintings for sale at Shop Oil Paintings and Shop MODERN.

Please note that my paintings are only available for sale through this website, exhibitions or art shows in which I participate.  I do not sell through other websites or traditional brick-and-mortar galleries because I prefer to offer directly to my collectors high-quality, one-of-a-kind paintings at affordable prices.  All paintings come signed by me with a certificate of authenticity affixed to the back.

How long before I receive a painting?

Most oil paintings take 2-3 weeks to dry depending on the thickness of the paint, the canvas, etc. As all works are original this may result in waiting a little longer than usual for items purchased online, but your patience will be rewarded with a high-quality, one-of-a-kind piece of art that will last for many generations.

How can I know when you make something new?

Simply subscribe to my Newsletters. Whenever I make something new I e-mail my subscribers this Newsletter, consisting of a high-quality photograph and brief description. The Newsletter is free, you can unsubscribe at any time, and your information will never be shared or sold to any third parties.

Can I visit your studio?

I’m always happy to receive visitors.  During one October weekend each year my studio is open to the public as part of our local “Studio Tour.”  It’s a great way for local artists to share art and give back to the community.  If you subscribe to my Newsletters I will notify you in advance of the next Studio Tour.  In the meantime, if you’d like to arrange a private visit simply send me an e-mail with your contact details and availability.
