A beautiful, little gem of a piece. Planning on putting in a much larger frame with a big, white mat. I also LOVE that the proceeds go to cancer research. I've bought others; this one is for me. :-)

Good and Good

Having survived a serious cancer, and having been a college fine arts painting faculty, it occurred to me that I could offer my paintings and contribute the profits to cancer research.

Every penny that's left after the small fee deductions of Etsy and PayPal goes to cancer research institutions which have top ratings from Charity Navigator.

It's a good thing for me to give back, a good thing for buyers who want to support cancer research, and a good thing for us all to support research which might bring relief to suffering.

Shop policies

Thanks for considering buying something from this shop. This shop runs a little differently from most etsy shops -- all the profits go to cancer research. I donate my time and materials, so the paintings are priced to reflect that donation on my part. Your purchase price is your part in the effort to raise funds to increase cancer research. I love sending them out to people all around the country. Together, we can make a difference!
Because this shop is all about getting funds to cancer researchers, items are made and priced to sell. Your art will be made to the best standards I know, and I have been making art for many years and have taught painting and have had gallery and museum shows. However, my works will come to you with a label identifying it as coming from PaintingWell (or Handmadehelp) but are unsigned.
My goal is to allow you, an individual person, to own a one-of- a-kind original work of art. Because the prices are somewhat low, re-sellers are attracted. Be aware that no rights of copying are given, either electronic, digital, or real. These works are considered authentic Painting Well originals, and protected.

Accepted payment methods

I accept Paypal. It is quick, easy and safe for all.
You do not need a Paypal account to use Paypal, only an e-mail address. You can use credit card, or debit card. Paypal guides you through the payment process.
The buyer must pay at the time the transaction is created.

If you need assistance with the purchasing process click here:
There is an opportunity in the Etsy checkout area for you to write a note to the seller.

You may cancel an order before it ships.
(PLEASE take note if there's a vacation notice in the shop announcement concerning away time and shipping times)
I check my shop nearly everyday (computer permitting!) and package and ship on the same day, or next day if it's too late to make the post. This applies on sales made Monday through Thursday. Sales after noon on Thursdays will be shipped the following Monday. I'll convo or e-mail you if there will be a delay in shipping.
I use recycled cardboard or plastic and a protective cover of waxy paper or parchment. Some items are sent USPS first class package rate and shipping costs are based on that rate. First class mail delivery time depends on the destination - 5 to 9 days is average. Priority mail is used for larger items and higher shipping reflect that. Priority delivers in 2-3 days, usually.
Because the packing process is so time consuming, and I do everything here myself, I have to charge more than the actual cost of postage.
Please convo me if you have any special shipping needs, like if you have a brutal mailperson, or your mailbox leaks, ha, or if wet is an issue for oversized mail drops. Or if you want insurance coverage.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy. This is an act of appreciation on my part, appreciation for those who have had to die before me in order that science could find a way for me to be alive today. I'm not making any money -- I donate all my time and supplies as a way of paying it forward. If for any reason you are not happy with the painting you receive, I'll do everything I can to work it out with you. Convo me for options.
***should you decide to return the painting, you will be responsible for return shipping costs. Once the item(s) are received in good condition, a refund will be issued.
