Local purchases and sometimes those within a certain vicinity from Pittsburgh, PA. can possibly be scheduled to be delivered and/or installed by our professional art handlers or by the artist himself. There may be a delivery and installation charge depending on the delivery location, size of the piece, and where the painting is to be hung.
Framing the painting can be arranged prior to shipping if desired. Consider calling us to discuss framing options. Larger pieces on canvas usually do not need to be framed unless a frame is desired. The 2” edges of the pieces are painted. Frames for pieces on canvas panel can be provided upon request for a minimal extra charge prior to shipping. Having a painting framed by us will delay the delivery for a minimal amount of time while the frame is ordered, delivered to us, and the work is framed.
If you are interested in a painting that has a dominant teal or turquoise color please ask to have a sample swatch of the exact color mailed to you. These particular colors can sometimes be slightly different in digital format from the actual painting color, and therefore the color on the internet may be a shade or two different. If you want it to be exact we suggest you contact the studio for the swatch.
Measure accurately so the piece will fit the space but not be overcrowded. Call us with any concerns or questions in helping place the art or discuss your choices and options. A PowerPoint presentation or photo can be presented to you if an accurate, clear, head on picture of your wall is emailed to the studio. We can then send you the presentation with the image of the painting you are considering on your wall. Or you can upload a picture of your wall (clear, straight on shot) on the contact page. We also have an experienced interior designer who works with us. We can discuss with you how your chosen painting will work within your room and offer suggestions if the piece is or isn’t an appropriate size for the wall space. We can also offer suggestions based on your budget for artwork. Free consultation with our designer and the artist is by phone appointment. Just call to schedule.
