All my paintings are original pieces of art although I do revisit certain motifs sometimes. Thus, you may be inspired by a painting that has already been sold, in which case you can choose different parameters for your own painting (another format;different colors/mood;add or omit various elements -- simply, anything you wish).
There is no obligation for you to purchase the custom-made painting if you are not happy about it. Moreover, you do not have to pay any deposit, as my philosophy is "Like it or leave it."
Footnote: For your approval, I will e-mail you an SLR image, together with the color scale, made using special LED lights for professional photographers, meaning that the painting's colors are captured accurately.
Overall, there is no need to remind that a painting purchased from me directly is 40% to 60% cheaper (incl. the transport) than when bought in a gallery.
As regards a potential frame for your painting, I only offer a few select designs. The frames come from my trusted carpenter at a discounted wholesale price. Therefore, you can save at least 50% as compared to a similar frame purchased elsewhere.
It is not necessary to frame oil paintings on canvass since I paint on the sides (2 cm thick) as well;however, a well-chosen frame always enhances the appearance of the painting.
