Original Watercolour Painting "Colony"
8x10 inches
Watercolour, ink, coloured pencil on paper

*frame is not included*

The pigeon has taken over the hummingbirds, placing them in a cage and giving them scant resources to survive. But every once in a while, he will let them out of the cage to roam. He loves to dress up in shiny bling and fragrant blossoms like a king upon a throne! The hummingbirds, thirsty for nectar, buzz around to the delight of Pigeon and his audience like a special performance. The audience will think of Pigeon as a compassionate king! When the show is over, he will put the hummingbirds back into the cage until he needs them again.

Some of the birds and flowers stick out from the surface of the paper.

This painting will arrive *unframed* in a sturdy, flat mailer for ease of shipping.

Returns and exchange details

I try to be as detailed as I can in product descriptions. With that in mind...

If it arrives damaged: Please let me know immediatly! Heartbreaking, but I know that canada post is not gentle with letters/packages. I will give the full refund, but I must ask that the damaged item be returned to me first :(

If item never arrives to you: I accept this as my problem and will take responsibility for it. Please wait through the delivery estimation (particularly during holidays) fully before making the claim. I will be keeping track.

For a change of heart: I cannot be held responsible for a sudden change of heart for an accurately described item. Please leave enough time for shipment and read descriptions thoroughly! I'm also not responsible for customs/import related fees. Feel free to refuse delivery or otherwise return an item for refund **less shipping fees in this case**

Shipping policies

Currently I am using standard Canada Post, and am able to ship within a day or two.

(Please keep in mind that your country may charge you a duty fee as your purchase goes through customs. I mark my parcels "merchandise" as law requires it.)

Local: 2-5 days
Within Canada: 4-10 days
To USA: 1-2 weeks
International: 2-3 weeks
(according to Canada Post website)

Feel free to contact me about emergency rushes, special instructions, address changes, etc through convo.

Q: Why is shipping so high on art journals?
A: Canada Post is expensive! I usually ship these using Small Packet Air. Unfortunately for fellow Canadians, Small Packet is not available to us and must be sent Parcel Post.

- I do not spray anything with perfume.
