Shipping

   I tend to use USPS Priority Mail unless someone has another preference. I've always had good luck with them in the past. The 2 to 3 day delivery schedule makes for faster arrival times & more time spent in the air then on the ground, less handling & less time on the roads.

   Original pastels are very fragile. Please handle with care as anything that touches the surface can scratch or smear the artwork. Originals are carefully packed & shipped encased in rigid foamcore & cardboard surrounding the piece, which is matted & backed with 100% cotton rag museum board, adding to it's protection. We use reverse beveled mats as, even in normal framing & hanging, some "dusting off" can occur. Dusting off is when small particles of pastel dust fall off the original & the reverse bevel mats help hide these specks when framed. I add a second coat of fixative to all shipped pastels to help prevent this, but it can still happen. A careful, gentle, blowing off of dust on the mat that may have dropped before framing is recommended. All originals are shipped insured for the appropriate value. Please contact me right away if any damage has occurred.
