I like to think of this as the lemonade stand for my art. It's a still summer day here in my front yard. I can hear the muffled sound of a train in the distance. My neighbor is plucking idly at his guitar. The white-crowned sparrow comes back to the nest above the porch light and the baby birds make loud peeping sounds.

I've got the rest of the day ahead of me! I've got my hand painted sign there above the cardboard box I'm sitting at, I've got my paintings all lined up in neat rows, and I've got my little tin can set out. I've got the little transistor radio dialed to the non-profit jazz station. It's a good day for sitting and hoping. It's a good day to think about more paintings. I hope you visit and find it's a good day to take something home with you.

Returns and exchanges
If you are at all unhappy about your purchase please do not hesitate to contact me so we can discuss it. While I can't adjust a hem on a painting, or paint you another one with addendums or different colors, it makes no sense for you to keep something if you absolutely cannot live with it. The painting won't be happy, you won't be happy, I won't be happy. Let's all try to keep happy. If you don't like it, tell me so, and then send it back.

I cannot guarantee a full refund on work on canvas because those pieces have to go to therapy after they have gone through trauma, but again, talk to me. We will figure something out.
Payment is expected upon purchase, although if this is not possible please contact me so we can work something out. At this time I can only accept payments through paypal.
I generally ship using UPS with tracking and conformation. If you would like insurance or registered mail please contact me and we can work that out. Please contact me regarding international shipments for anything larger than a few postcards. I usually ship on Tuesdays and Fridays, and will send a convo to let you know when your order has been shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
Computer screens do not equal real-life experiences of paintings, or postcards, or little cloth napkins. If you are at all curious about the coloring or how something looks in a different light, let me know and I will send some photos with myself, the painting, and some other common objects in various settings to try and establish a better sense of how the work feels.

I am happy to discuss consignment, wholesale, custom orders, coffee, brain wind, birds or just about anything else with you. Drop me a line.
