Announcement   CUSTOM PORTRAITS

An oil painting is a powerful way to honor the love which is dearest to your heart. You and I join our intentions and our inspiration to capture a moment in time that you wish to keep forever. A timeless painting, vibrant with color, texture and life: a beautiful way to say what needs to be said, when words don't say enough.

**************************************************************

HOW TO COMMISSION A PAINTING

1. Purchase one of the Custom Portrait listing from this shop to commission a portrait from your photographs. In your order notes, please include the e-mail that is the best way to reach you.

2. We will communicate by e-mail so that you can share your photos with me.

3. Before I begin painting, I will do a preliminary sketch (if needed) for you to review.

4. Now I paint. Please allow 6-12 weeks for the painting to be completed. This time allows for shipment of materials and drying time as well as the actual time to paint it. If you would like to receive your painting sooner, please let me know right away.

5. I will e-mail you a photo of the finished painting for final review. (I may also send update photos while I work if there are major design choices to be made.)

6. Once approved, and drying time is complete, I will carefully package and ship your new treasure to you!

Painting is the magical, beautiful gift that has blessed my life with so much joyful expression over the years. I have an eye for life-like portraits and capturing dynamic light. I can feel flowers and trees calling me to paint them. I answer the call as often as I am able!

**************************************************************

COMMISSION WORK
If you would like to work with me to create a beautiful piece of artwork for your living or work space, or commission a portrait of someone or something that's close to your heart, I would enjoy nothing more.

THE MAGIC OF MY PAINTINGS
Each piece that you see here is a window into a moment of human history; a snapshot from my vantage point; my life suspended in form. I love this medium, because words are not needed. All that wishes to be held and conveyed is present in the moment you give it your attention. The window is always there, always clear as day. You need only be present with it for it to let you in. Colors vibrate in tones too deep for the ear to hear, but you can feel them, can you not? You join in and become an instrument for life to strum-- just as it has be doing since the day I was inspired to paint-- just as it has been doing since the beginning of time.

This artist is so talented! Our painting turned out even more beautiful than the original photograph. We are extremely pleased with her work.

About

Joy and Love for Painting

ABOUT ME

My name is Danielle Olivyea Christian. I am an oil painter, in love with nature's vibrant color-- especially fragrant flowers! I am also a musician, writer and transformational healer. I live on Whidbey Island in Washington with my little boy, Dante.

Painting is the magical, beautiful gift that has blessed my life with so much joyful expression over the years. I have an eye for life-like portraits and capturing dynamic light. I can feel flowers and trees calling me to paint them. I answer the call as often as I am able!

I started painting for the first time in high school. Before that, my parents kept the shelves stocked with drawing supplies for my three younger sisters and me to keep busy. (We were allowed little to no TV). This was my training ground. Family was my critique group. We created both music and art. What a wonderful way to grow up!

My first attempt with oil paints was a disaster, as was my second. I didn't think it would take. But somehow, I discovered how to complete paintings quickly in spite of the super slow drying time.

My work is often seen framed with hand crafted or carved woodwork. Lately, I enjoy purchasing plain, unfinished wood frames and giving them a shabby/antique feel using chalk paint and gold foil. This is SO fun.

I have displayed my work mainly in Ventura and Temecula of southern California. Currently my paintings are on display at various locations on Whidbey Island. I have sold countless pieces to happy collectors across the United States and beyond. Nearly all of my portraits have been commissioned by word of mouth referrals. So if you know someone who would love my art, please pass the word along!

Thank you for visiting my art gallery and taking in the joy and love of my paintings.

Accepted modes of payment:

CREDIT/DEBIT, PAYPAL . By request, CHECKS and MONEY ORDER payments can be arranged.

***A PAYPAL ACCOUNT IS NOT REQUIRED to place an order.

WASHINGTON STATE TAX WILL BE ADDED TO ALL ORDERS PLACED WITH A WASHINGTON SHIPPING ADDRESS.
Shipping
Most purchases are shipped within 7-10 business days of receiving payment. Made to order custom work will require 6-12 weeks. Contact me for details.

DELIVERY CONFIRMATION AND INSURANCE
Purchases within the U.S. ship with delivery confirmation. Buyers from overseas may contact Danielle to arrange their preferred shipping method.

All artwork is packaged securely to protect from water or damage during shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
FOR NON-CUSTOM ORDERS: If for any reason you are not happy with the artwork or it isn't what you expected, you may return it for a full refund. Returns will only be accepted if you contact me within 72 hours and the return package is postmarked within 7 days of having received it. The artwork must be returned in perfect condition (or the same condition as when you received it)-- so package very carefully, get tracking and insure!!!!! Customer is responsible for shipping cost. No refunds will be issued for paintings damaged or lost during shipping.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
Custom painting sales are final. I go to great lengths to make sure you get the painting of your dreams. Before I paint I provide sketches unless you supply a photo for me to work from and then I send you photos of the work during the process, so you can influence my progress. In this way, I have created lovely works for many happy customers. If for some reason the finished result is not to your liking (even after having seen photos of the finished work in advance), you may return the artwork for me to work on further at an additional cost.

CANCELLATION OF CUSTOM REQUESTS STILL IN PROGRESS: $150 Design Fee is non-refundable once a custom painting order has been placed. In the unlikely event that you decide to cancel your painting before it has been completed, after time and materials have already been invested into its creation, up to 1/2 of the total cost of the painting may be non-refundable in proportion to the work that has already been done. I say this only as a precaution, since I have never actually needed to employ this policy.
