Buying a Painting

Most of the paintings in this site are for sale. I used the highest quality oils and materials. In my paintings, I use heavy inpasto oils with multi colors that are then carved to reveals these colors.

To qualified collectors, I offer time payments and discounts if you buy more than one painting or if you are a present customer. The prices of my artwork are based on a sensible hourly wage, multiply this amount by the number of hours I take to make the artwork, I add the cost of materials and overhead (studio rent etc.), and I arrive at a price. The prices are also influenced to similar pieces sold at a given price, artistic significance, and size.

Please use the contact me to access the form, if you would like to contact me, or if you would like to purchase one of my paintings and if you have any questions.
