Frequently Asked Questions
|2. What do you paint with? |
Usually I use acrylic paints on canvas. But every once in a while I paint with oil paints. I experiment painting on different surfaces - wood, styrofoam,different types of paper, wallpaper, metal.
|1. Where do you get your ideas? |
Anywhere and everywhere. I travel quite a bit, am interested in many different subjects and read a lot. I usually always have a sketchbook nearby and scribble out ideas and characters and painting ideas at random.
|3. What type of acrylic paints do you use? |
Most of my paints are Schmincke brand. They are a high-quality paints from Germany. Since I apply the paint on thick I like the consistency of the Schmincke paints.
|4. So you paint mainly on canvas? |
Yes. Most of my paintings are created on stretched canvas over a wooden inner frame. These high-quality canvas are made from heavy-weight cotton, covered with a coating of gesso that has been handsanded.
More and more I stretch my own canvases.
|Most of the paintings I create on canvas are in the size from 50 x 70 cm up to 100 x 140 cm. (approx 19.8 x 27.8 inches to 39.6 x 55.6 inches). |
I do paint on other objects. I recently completed a commissioned work of art that was constructed of 20 wooden boxes fastened together. The painting was over 4 x 5 1/2 feet in size.
|5. Do you ship your paintings to any location? |
I have shipped my paintings to collectors around the world.
I pack my paintings extra secure so they always arrived undamaged.
(All paintings are fully insured when they are shipped.)
|6. Do you take commissions; can you create a custom painting for me? |
Yes, if it fits into my schedule and I can meet the deadline of the person requesting the painting. The way to commission a painting is e-mail me with your idea for the painting, the size you want and your deadline and I will get back to you with a price quote and delivery time.
