The paintings with different sizes to choose from are painted when you order one. Oil paint needs at least one week of drying time before I can safely send it.

Then after posting, it depends where you are located relative to Amsterdam (The Netherlands), how much time the shipping will take.

PS the reason I work this way is that my painting technique is now actually better than a few years ago. Also for myself I often paint on cardboard (it is easier to store).
If kept in good room condition and out of direct sunlight, in theory, oil paintings might last 200-300 years. I use a proper way of grounding panels for oil paint, and only pigments with most excellent lightfastness. Therefore the colours are not likely to change over time.

So the first 30 years nothing big should be visually happening with the painting. After +/- 30 years the painting might start to yellow a bit, and mild craquele might appear (although this cracking of the paint is also not very likely since a very stable panel is used).

These effects are by the way a natural consequence of a painting getting old, and have a certain beauty in themselves!
With most paintings I have different sizes to choose from. This allows also people on a small budget to acquire a work of mine. I will do my best to get most of the detail in even on the smallest sized panels.
No. Actually I think framing is a bit out-dated! But that's my personal opinion. Paintings on panel can hang unframed without any problem. The paintings have a simple hanging system on the back. So that it can hang with just one nail, hook or screw (preferably a little hook).
