Care instructions

When framing a Watercolor painting or any original artwork, please consider acid free mats and backing to avoid yellowing with time.
Keep your painting out of direct sunlight, which will cause fading to the pigments of the paint. That way you will enjoy your painting for generation to come.

Custom and personalized orders

I send you a photo of your sketch before we go to paint, just to make sure the architecture and other details you'd like added are right before we go to paint! Please let me know any details with clear well lit photo references.
