Watercolor, 12"x18"
If you'd like to buy some art, here's some things you should know:
  • Prices are for unframed work only.
  • Listed sizes refer to size of work when framed, not to the size of the image. Original works on paper include a mat and backing board; reproductions are sent as is. (info)
  • For sales in the continental USA, postage, packaging, insurance and taxes are included in the price. Everywhere else, there may be an additional charge for postage.
  • Discounts are available in many circumstances. Ask!

    To buy art from this web site:

  • I do it the old-fashioned way -- personally! Contact me at myarcadia@juno.com to confirm availability of item and method of payment. Sometimes it takes me a few days to respond.
  • If you pay by check or money order: Artwork will be shipped to you after your funds have been confirmed and deposited into my account. (I also accept cash, but I don't recommend sending it through the mail.) There is a $25.00 fee on bounced checks.
  • Credit card purchases: Available through my art guild. They charge a commission, so I can't offer any discounts. They accept MasterCard, Visa and American Express.
  • I now have a PayPal account, but I haven't figured out to use it yet. If you don't like option A or B, that would be a good way to kick me into gear and finally offer PayPal as a payment option.

    In-person sales:

  • If you are in the vicinity of Prince William County, Virginia, you may be able to save on shipping costs by visiting the studio. Hours are by appointment.
  • You can also make in-person purchases at one of the many art shows listed in the Exhibits schedule. Prices may vary somewhat, depending on the show. Many shows accept only cash or check.

    Commissioned work:

  • Priced by the piece. A non-refundable downpayment (up to 1/2 the final price) is customary. Preliminaries will be provided upon request. Final payment is due upon approval of the finished work.
  • To commission a work, contact Michele at myarcadia@juno.com for an estimate.
