I want you to be happy with your purchase and most of the time everything works out perfectly. However, Artwork is a very personal thing and sometimes it arrives and just doesn't look the way you expected on your wall. And, although it is outside my control, images on the internet don't always show the exact colors across different devices making it difficult if you are trying to match your decor. So, yes... returns are possible.

Special Orders - Returns and Refunds
In general special orders are not returnable or refundable, but each situation will be handled on a case by case basis. I do value having happy, satisfied customers.
there is significant time spent upfront discussing customer specifications and design
the item that may be so specific that it might not be able to be sold to someone else
communication during the process and photos sent prior to shipping should give plenty of opportunity for the item to meet the customer's requirements.
please understand that it takes time and my personal creative energy to create works of art and even more of both to create special orders.
My greeting cards, photographs, and art prints are printed at my studio using professional papers and an ink tank printer (instead of ink cartridges) which is less wasteful and generally considered to be better for the environment.

Fluid Abstract Paintings
My acrylic fluid abstract paintings are created using a very wet and often messy process.
First, I carefully prepare white paint that is about the consistency of pancake batter and let it sit so the bubbles created during the mixing process are released.
I lay the canvas flat and pour the white paint over the entire surface. Then I add drops of color. I use various implements to blow the paint around such as hair driers and drinking straws. When I feel this surface has sufficiently developed, I draw into the surface with various items I have here at my studio. Honestly, one of my favorite tools for this is to drag different sized paint brush handles through the paint.
My acrylic landscape paintings occasionally depict scenes that exist in reality; however, most of them are born out of imagination and the creative process and are not created directly from photographs. I do constantly look at the surrounding environment and take inspiration from the open spaces, never ending western sky, and generally beautiful weather we have here in Albuquerque, NM.
Fluid Abstract Paintings - special orders:
If you don't see that perfect painting on my website, please Contact Me. I can create a fluid abstract painting especially for you. You can specify the size and the colors you like, or colors that compliment your home decor. So, let's talk about it!
Landscape Paintings - special orders:
I agree to do landscape special orders that are of interest to me and that will go well with my style of painting, which contains some whimsy, and often does not lend itself well to precise reproduction from a photograph. If you love my work and look forward to an artistic, creative interpretation of your home, pet, garden, mountain view, or something else that is dear to you, please Contact Me about your idea.
