Updates

New cactus minis!! Each hand painted canvas is 4x4 inches. Dress up a tiny space with tiny art.
I went hog wild with water based inks on these. The colors are very vibrant!
Last week I created the Reef : Rose and Prussian abstract with acrylics, alcohol ink, and calligraphy ink. This piece features rose red and Prussian blue copic inks with white botanical detailing. Enjoy the water botanical trend on a budget!
This was a piece that started stressing me out while it was a work in progress. That is NOT what art is all about, so I titled it "Just Float" as a reminder that we all need to lean back and let some smooth calm flow over us each day.

About

Creating A Life of Vibrant Color Inspired by Nature

Lake & River is all about nature. The name comes from a play on the meaning of the names of my first two children. After testing the waters in other creative venues over the years, it was time to come back to the beginning. Creating beauty.
I fell down the painting rabbit hole over 20 years ago and decided to go back.
All works, both physical and digital, are based on items or visions in nature. Most are based on plant life right in our own garden and home. (We are big plant enthusiasts here!)
While all of the physical items in the shop are original paintings, the digital art downloads may be based on paintings, photography, or graphic design.

I use several media to create my paintings. The most common are acrylic inks, acrylic paints, alcohol inks, synthetic papers, cotton papers, canvas, and wood. Of course there are usually paint brushes, isopropyl alcohol, torches, heat guns, and the occasional power tool involved.

All originals are matted with acid free matte, backboard, and linen tape made in the USA. They are coated in UV protective varnish and housed in a resealable crystal sleeve. Originals are signed by artist, with the title and year on the back side of the backboard. Make sure not hang in direct sunlight. Larger originals are available at lakeandriverco.com.

Frequently asked questions
What materials are used for original art?

Paintings are mostly created with acrylics, watercolors, and/or inks. Mediums used are professional high quality to reduce fading. All canvases, papers, and mattes are acid free archival safe materials to ensure longevity. When possible, materials are U.S. sourced.

Are prints available?

Prints are a more affordable way to enjoy fine art. Lake & River offers several art pieces as printable downloads for personal use. You may upload these large, high resolution downloads to a site like pixels.com to create various prints and goods. You can have the image made into canvases, pillows, shower curtains, phone cases, etc. Make sure to check your file size before having a large item made. Some files can be made into something as large as a bedspread, but others are more suitable for an 8x10. For examples of what all you can do with the larger images, see our page: http://lakeandriverstudio.com/art-prints/

Of course you can also just print them out on your home printer on cardstock.

Contact me with any questions.

When will my purchase ship?

Printable downloads will be available in your account as soon as your payment clears. Usually it only takes a few minutes.

Original paintings will be processed, packaged, and shipped within 24 hours of payment clearing. Paintings will be shipped flat packed with cardboard bracers and poly padding. Please keep the shipping materials to reuse if you decide to return items.

Orders are shipped with tracking numbers. If your order is lost in the mail, contact me so we can work together to find it. Things happen. Usually if buyers and sellers work together we can track down missing packages.

Returns, cancellations, and exchanges.

While the generic shop policies say no returns, this is flexible on original paintings. If you receive your painting, and it just doesn't fit in with your decor the way you hoped or you simply changed your mind, we allow a return if it has been less than 14 days since shipping and the item is in original condition. This includes not removing it from its matting. Buyer must pay for return shipping. Contact me to see if your painting order qualifies!

If your order arrived to you damaged, we will send you a prepaid shipping label to return it for a full refund.

No returns, exchanges, or cancellations of downloads.

Custom and personalized orders

If you see a printable item, but would like a different color, I might be able to alter a hue or paint a similar piece. I can then make the item available for your purchase. I do not do free customizations on already purchased downloads.

If you wish to commission an original painting, message me and we can discuss what you have as your vision.
