Caring for your art
All of my artwork is "archival". The oil paintings will last at least 100 years. (Wouldn't it be nice if we all lived that long!)
Placing Your Art
Never place your art in areas where there is direct sunlight, close to heat sources or in high moisture areas. Sunlight will damage the pigments (colors) and may increase breakdown of the substrate. Moisture will cause mold or fungus and could permanently damage the painting and substrate.
Cleaning and Hanging Your Art
Works on paper should be framed with acid free mats and placed in modestly lit areas with ample ventilation. For larger works on paper (over 16" x 20" framed size), I recommend using Plexiglas or Lucite as they are lighter and much safer than glass. However, Plexiglas scratches easily. There may be other options so talk to your framer for ideas.
Works on canvas can be cleaned or dusted with a very soft cloth and absolutely NO cleaning agents ever! They may dissolve the paint off the surface. If your art really needs proper cleaning, you can seek out an art restoration company who will clean the work safely. My oil paintings on canvas have clean finished edges. You may choose to frame them or not, depending on how the art looks on your chosen wall.
Make sure you have plastic bumpers on the back corners of all your art so that mold doesn't build and stain the back of the art or your wall.
Art Rentals & Prints
I'm now offering art rentals to various industries. Soon, I'll offer limited edition prints too. Stay tuned!
Payment Plans Available
Hello, I am now working with a company that will offer a purchase payment plan available for art over $1,500 value. Please contact me for more information.
Art For Canadian Businesses
If you operate a business in Canada you can purchase Canadian artist work ($200+ value) and deduct the cost over time on your tax return. Also, art rentals and leasing are tax deductible too. Contact your tax lawyer or accountant for more details. No more boring walls!
Let's hope the pandemic subsides by next year! Everyone, please stay safe.
For those artists wanting to learn new skills or just improve, I hope to launch a few workshops. Click the Teaching link at the top of my website for more general information. These will be in and around Vancouver, BC, Canada.
When workshops come available a new link in the menu bar will be added. News will also be posted in the Opus Framing & Art Supplies website and in my e-newsletters. Click "Subscribe" in the top menu for newsletters.
Art Demos at Opus Art Supplies
I Love Teaching Art!
I gave a demonstration (Jan.2013) to 30 artists at Opus Art Store on Granville Island. It was so much fun and a great success. If you need private tutoring on drawing or painting, please call me. Here is what one participant said:
"Hi! I just want you to know how very inspiring your demo session was yesterday! Thank you for being so thorough in not only sharing information about the various brands and their potential but paper choices, and techniques that those new to the medium can actually try with the possibility of some success ! Plus your major encouragement to just get at it and have a "bash"!
