About the Art

Yes and yes! Nearly all original art comes framed from me in a simple way. I used either pine or redwood strips, eith natural or stained a color. On original purchases over $350 I am happy to change it out for free. If you want to get it framed yourself, just let me know in the order comments and I will remove the frame free of charge. (No money off). It may even save a tad in shipping costs.

For prints you can choose to have it framed through my printing shop on the order pages. Otherwise they come non framed.

Nathan uses mainly acrylic paint on wood panel for his originals. Occasionally he will work on canvas. Often he will incorporate wood stain, inks, spray paint, resin, and other materials in some of his mixed media works. 

He generally uses Birch 3/8 inch panel backed with select pine strips. There are occasions where he uses reclaimed panels of various types to be environmentally conscious. 

For frames he mostly uses select pine or redwood strips stained or unstained.

All art comes ready to hang with sturdy wire.

Every original is signed, named, and dated on the back with a business card attached. 

Mostly no. Nathan usually issues open edition prints. However on occasion there will be a special limited small run of certain styles. 

General Info

I am glad you asked. Custom art is prices off of the square inch up to 48in.x48in. based off of the style of art. Once a painting is booked larger than that size a sliding scale is introduced to keep costs down. Prices usually range from $1.00-$2.00 per sq inch depending on the style.

Next, you and I will communicate by email, text, or phone, about what you are looking for. I will give you some homework, like looking at previous art I have created for inspiration, or providing a photo reference for me to work off of. Once that is done, depending on the complexity I will provide a rough sketch for approval after a deposit has been made. I require a 50% NON REFUNDABLE deposit to begin work.

As I create your masterpiece I will check in with you and show progress and get your input. Although some clients want to be totally suprised. While I reserve the right of total creative control, I of course want you to be happy with colors and style.

If you choose to have me frame the art, we will disuss wood types and colors. Usually simple frames are included in your commission.

Yes I do! I probably the only artist who does this. I am so confident my art with hold its value I am willing to take it back at any time for full original price trade in value.

All of our prints are made to order at Spirit Printing in sunny San Diego. Depending on your order you can expect for the print to leave the shop in 7-10 days. Then based off of your location and your shipping choice it will dictate the delivery time.

For original art, Nathan has most of it at his studio, unless it is in one of his local galleries he shows in. Art showing out of state or internationally will not be available for sale. If it is at his studio, you can expect it to be packed and shipped in 3-4 business days, then based off of your location, and your shipping choice, will dictate the delivery time. If he needs to pull it from a gallery, that could add a few more days as well.

All originals are insured for the amount of the sale price. This will be included in your shipping and packing charges.
