  1. Why do originals cost so much?

Many hours go into creating an original painting.

  • The canvas is stretched
  • Canvas is primed
  • Design is created from photos which have been taken.
  • Plan is developed so that there is a logical step by step from background painting to finished painting.
  • Design is sketched onto the canvas and painting plus application of texture paste using stencils and palette knives is performed.
  • Many layers of painting plus a final protective varnish all done with love and care.
  1. Do you offer framing?


Originals are painted on a deep edge canvas which may be hung without framing. The deep edges are painted to allow for this.

Fine Art Reproductions on stretched canvas also do not require a frame and come ready to hang on your wall.

Fine Art Reproductions onto Cotton Rag Paper do need framing. Any good professional framer can do this for you.
