What is the difference between stretched and unstretched canvas?

Stretched canvas means the painting is still on wooden stretcher bars. It can therefore be hung on a wall as is, with one nail. Unstretched canvas means  the painting has been taken off its stretcher bars and therefore looks more like a tapestry, with raw canvas showing around the edges of the work. This is hung with pins instead.

What is the cost of shipping? Does it change if a work is stretched or unstretched?

Shipping cost is not included and will vary depending on location. Stretched paintings will be sent in a crate. If the buyer wants to buy a stretched painting but prefers it to be unstretched before being sent, it can be arranged. All shipment is through DHL.

Do I have to email you in order to buy a piece?

Yes! I am a small operation and prefer communicating directly. Once the piece is spoken for, payment can be arranged through Venmo, Zelle, or personal checks.
