About

Original paintings by art student

BACKGROUND
Artistic background comes from my family. My great-grandfather was an artist and art collector. His pantings and collections decorate my house and my cousins and uncles and other relatives homes. His legacy is still around a long time after his time and century. I continue this field in our family. I studied in art school when I was still a child, continiued to embrace a hobby while studying engineering and now I attend freelance courses in Art Academy to master my skills in painting and drawing.

IN THE SHOP
Artworks available in my shop are mostly made for Academy study porposes. They come from classes of still life painting and human face and body drawing. Another importand category is reproductions of classical paintings. These handmade copies of best artworks in the world include pieces from various countries covering most popular art styles and artists from different centuries. These artworks take 15 to 45 hours to be created with the smallest detail and are very valuable. And a wide collection of abstracts and small pieces made years ago now bought back in the light.

IDEA FOR SHOP
The purpose of art is not to produce product, but produce thinking. Only hand-made traditional artworks (all by me)- oil paintings, still life, study materials, graphics and abstract art pieces are available on this Etsy store. You can purchase original artworks or prints for those artworks that are in collections or are not available for other reasons, but appreciation of their aesthetics may be just the thing you are looking for.

Many people have found their desired art piece through these sections- artworks by LL can be found in private collections over the world including Australia, USA, UK, Germany, Japan, Latvia and Russia.

I will be happy to advice you on choosing an artwork. Or to share the origin or story behind each painting. There is one for any of them. Feel free to get in contact.

    Riga, Latvia

    Probably most popular digital print place in Riga. They often save students on deadlines as they work 24/7. You rush in just to make a copy or print stuff. Printed my painting on nice, thick papers or canvas.

Frequently asked questions
How are the artworks packaged and wrapped? Will it arrive safely?

Artworks are shipped inbetween cardboards (streched canvas) or in a tube (unstreched canvas). I pack all of my paintings very carefully, sometimes with bubble wrap, 3mm hard cardboard, tape and/or whatever else seems to be needed and convenient when I pack it so it would arrive safely as far as I can take care. I deeply care for my paintings.
Yet damaged packages happen disregarding everything, but this happens extremely rarely.

If you are interested in GIFT wrapping or any other special wrap or want it to be sent as a present to someone else, please let me know so we can meke a special arrangement. Using gold color tube and adding a special note from you is up to 12 USD, while second tube with filling for 40"x80" may reach extra 55 USD.

What are the estimated shipping times?

If not specified differently in the specific listing you are interested in, the estimated shipping times are these:

US: starting from 2 weeks normally or 6-8 working days with shipping upgrade "express"
EUROPE: 1 week normally or 4-6 days with shipping upgrade "express"
AUSTRALIA: starting from 3-8 weeks normally (varies so much according to the timing when next post plane is going there)
ELSEWHERE: Australia timing

If there is no "express" shipping upgrade available for the listing, I will be using express services.

Postal services and if there is any trobule or dely with it...

As default I use EMS/USPS/European postal services. Usually they arrive way faster, but the last deadline that I give to shipping services before contacting them is 1-2 weeks late from expected shipping time (see above) so I kindly ask you to be patient if this is the case. The package is considered "missing" only after 45 days by post services.

We can always follow, see what is happening and where the artwork is with the trackng number. This far all of the paintings have arrived safely and in an excellent condition, my clients and I are satisfied with the services.

If there is any trouble, damage or missing, I do fill in the paperwork and contact with the services.

IMPORTANT! What should I do if the artwork package is damaged when it arrives?

If the package seems damaged from outside and there could be a damage to the painting, please take pictures of it BEFORE further unpacking so we can ask for a refund or ensurance with a confident proof. If you unpack the painting and only then realise that it is damaged, NO REFUNDS are issued neither from meil services or me.

Custom and personalized orders

Personalized and custom orders are both available. Let me know by clicking on the button below listing pictures or contact me via message.
We will talk through your needs and I will make a design and price offer and then you can choose whether this offer suits you. Do not worry about making any deal. We only make a deal when you actuall purchase a listing.

Sizing details

Unstretched paintings are shown with the size that the surface plate will be. By default there is 3" (6,5cm) extra canvas border left around the painting for stretching. Usually it is also written down in a listing, but feel free to contact me if you would like a clarification.

Care instructions

Most of my paintings are acrylic and this kind of paint is quite persistent to water, but still nothing should interract with the surface of the painting as ir can be scratched. The canvas can be torn if used too much of strength handling it.
The varnish provides a simple basic protection for colors from dust, aging and sunlight, yet direct sun rays may bleach the colors in a long period.
I almost never clean the paintings in my home as there is no need, but if you wish to do it, I would suggest to do it max.1 time per year.
If there is a food stain made on the artwork, remove it with a of soft cloth that is lightly soaked in room-temperature water.
Let me know if you have any other question about tending of painting.

My unstretched canvas painting arrived, but after unrolling it looks a bit rugged and uneven. Is it damaged? Why is that and what should I do?

No, it is not damaged. This is normal and you do not have to do anything as this will not affect the looks when the artwork will be stretched again.
While painting, the humiditu (water, acryl, canvas) differs for used materials. The surface gets one kind of humidity and the sides get another so canvas tends to rug a bit when it is taken off the painting frame.
This will even out when a proper stretching is done as the canvas will be on frame again.
