Frequently Asked Questions - Oil Paintings For Sale

Are your oil paintings hand-painted?

Yes, every oil painting of ours is 100% hand painted one brushstroke at a time by one of our experienced artists!

Do you have a guarantee and return policy?

Yes, we offer a 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee on your oil paintings, so there is no risk or headaches for you. If for any reason, you are not completely satisfied, you may return your oil paintings. Please visit the Our Guarantee section of our website for eligibility and to read more.

Are these prints or oil paintings you are selling? What is the difference between a hand-painted oil painting and a print?

Prints, also known as giclees, or digital or ink jet prints are actually machine or computer generated, made to look like an oil painting. What we offer is genuine hand-painted oil painting by an artist on canvas, painted one brushstroke at a time, the same way the masters have painted for centuries.

How close will the oil painting on the website look next to the oil painting I receive?

We have highly skilled and experienced artists who are able to beautifully reproduce any genre of oil painting. Our artists do not use printers to assist in the painting process. Since the oil paintings are completely hand-painted and not machine generated on an assembly line and because different computer screens may have different depictions of colors, there is always a slight variation between the reproduction and the original work of art. As such, each painting cannot be considered as an exact replica of the original painting, however, we can guarantee that our artists will work carefully and pay special attention to the features and details of each oil painting to make the reproduction as close to the original as possible.

How can you sell your oil paintings at these low prices?

We feel art should be affordable to everyone. With us you can buy direct at wholesale prices with no middleman and no obscene gallery mark up. We have a high volume purchasing power, low overhead, non-brick and mortars approach. Due to our low overhead and a high volume purchasing power, we are able to pass the savings onto our customers.

Will I have to pay duties and taxes if I am outside located outside the U.S.?

International orders (orders outside the United States) may be subject to customs fees and import duties and taxes of the country where the order is being shipped. These charges are the recipient’s responsibility. The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country where the order is being shipped. Custom policies vary by country, so you should contact your local customs agency for more information.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, and Discover), PayPal, check or money order. We also accept debit, bank or ATM cards as long as they have the Visa or MasterCard logo.

Do I have to pay sales tax?

Only Florida residents pay sales tax, which varies depending on which county you are located in. Trade accounts located in Florida where we have received a current, signed copy of the Trade Account’s Annual Resale Certificate for Sales Tax do not have to pay sales tax.

 If I order an oil painting with a frame, would it come ready to hang?

Yes, when you order an oil painting and frame from us, we stretch the canvas onto wood stretch bars, mount it into the frame, put the wiring on and provide you with hooks. So all you have to do is take it out of the box and hang it on your wall!

What is the difference between canvas stretching and gallery wrap?

Canvas stretching is where your oil painting canvas is stretched and stapled onto wooden stretcher bars, which is necessary before a painting is mounted into a frame. Gallery wrap is where the oil painting canvas is stretched onto larger 1.5‚ÄĚ wooden stretcher bars where part of the finished painting edges are wrapped around and visible on the sides of the stretcher bars and the staples are on the back to give a finished appearance on the sides so you can hang your oil painting without a frame. We offer canvas stretching, gallery wrap and framing services for an additional charge if you wish.

How long will it take for my oil paintings to arrive?

We have thousands of oil paintings in stock and if your oil paintings are in stock, your order will usually ship within one to two business days. If we temporarily do not have your oil paintings in stock, please allow between four to six weeks to have your oil paintings hand-painted by one of our artists, dried, and shipped to you.

How are the oil paintings protected when shipped?

We are extra careful when shipping your oil paintings. If you choose not to purchase frames for your oil paintings, they will be shipped in a heavy-duty protective shipping tube. If you purchase frames for your paintings, they will be carefully wrapped in bubble wrapping and placed in heavy duty double wall shipping boxes. See our Shipping Policy for additional details.

How much is shipping?

We offer free shipping and handling to our customers in the continental United States. For customers outside the continental United States, we offer free shipping and handling for unframed paintings. See our Shipping Policy for details about shipping framed paintings outside the continental United States.
