All sales are done via Paypal, which also allows purchases by major credit card. There is a one month return policy if the painting is not as advertised. Buyers are welcome and encouraged to initiate a sufficient number of email communications with the artist to become very familiar with the piece being considered for purchase. This includes, but is not limited to, additional information, such as extra photos and descriptions. Photos can include major closeups for paintbrush stroke information, mid-distance, on a wall or with a person to visualize size, or any other view to help the buyer make a decision. Extra photos for the jewelry can include, but are not restricted to, being modelled on a person.
