Additionally, I've included important details regarding my business practices, best lighting to illuminate the artworks, custom size options and more. If you don't find the answers to your questions here, I'd be thrilled to take your questions directly. Simply use the Contact form and I'll respond to your questions as soon as I possibly can.


What print media style options do I offer on my website

The works offered in the prime galleries featuring my best work & Limited Editions are available in 4 premium print styles - Photo Prints, Wood Float Plaq's, Aluma-Mount Gallery Floats and Acrylic Glass Face-Mount Gallery Floats. You can read detailed information of each gallery quality media style in PRINTS.

My best works & Limited Editions are only a portion of the photos I make available. If you browse in the Photo Archives - Galleries Sorted By Location, you'll see they default to the same premium print styles as the Limited Editions. However, if you are not seeking a high-end museum grade print media, I have many archival quality media options to choose from for general décor purposes. Be sure to contact me and I'll be happy to review those options with you.

How To Place An Order Online

Its super simple, just click on any artwork you love in the galleries and scroll down beneath the artwork description. Each media style has its own brief description, and a menu that shows the available sizes and pricing. Payments are safe & secure and are completed via PayPal or Stripe banking methods.

If you are participating in my VIP Customer Loyalty Rewards program with tiered discounts, or ordering in large volume, you'll need to contact me so I can generate a customized invoice. Most large volume orders are acquired via certified bank check before we process the order.

CAN THE ACRYLIC GLASS OR ALUMA-MOUNT GALLERY FLOATS BE FRAMED

The answer is a resounding yes! I only offer frameless mounted floats here on my website, but both of these print media styles can easily be placed in an external frame as soon as you unpack them, and bring the artwork to your local framing gallery.

Sometimes a simple Floater-frame makes a great external frame choice for an Acrylic glass piece


DO I OFFER FRAME AND MAT OPTIONS FOR PHOTO PRINTS

If you are purchasing my Photo Print option (ready to frame) then choosing a frame, liner, and mat color for a photo print is always best to experience in person after you take ownership of the artwork. This way, you can bring photos of your furnishings, or match with fabric swatches to pick up colors in your décor style. I recommend bringing your new photo print to a local qualified art framing gallery.

DO I OFFER CUSTOM SIZE OPTIONS

Yes. It's possible to order my artworks in custom sizes that are not visible on my website. If you have a specific area you are working with, I'm open to listening to your ideas and help make your interior design vision come to life. Please use the Contact form to reach out to me. Provide as much detail as you can think of.

WHAT IS THE BEST LIGHTING TO ILLUMINATE MY ARTWORKS

This is a GREAT question. Properly illuminating my large format pieces in your home makes an impactful difference. The richness and vivid colors and details really come to life when combined with the best possible lighting methods. A great solution is if you can install simple track lighting on the ceiling. If you already have a track that accepts low voltage 2-pin socket bulbs, you can purchase SoLux Bulbs which are a terrific solution. As a good rule of thumb, place the light source at a 30 degree angle to the center of the artwork.

Traditional ceiling mounted track lights using LED or So Lux bulbs work wonderfully


Another great option are ceiling mounted accent lights. Sometimes they are recessed and other applications are surface mounted fixtures. The same method of directing the source at a 30 degree angle works best. The light source should not be harsh, and a 4000K neutral white bulb won't cast a warm or cool color temperature on the artwork.

A lighting solution by Perfect Art Lights that can illuminate my work using existing ceiling cans. Note the angle.


Otherwise, traditional screw-in track bulbs, or even ceiling mounted recessed lights will accept LED bulbs. With LED's, the artwork can truly be seen and appreciated as it was intended. Its imperative to know and understand that the highest quality light you can directly illuminate your new artwork with makes a significant difference in the impactful nature of the media styles best features. My artwork above, titled LIQUID RAINBOW is illuminated by a ceiling mounted recessed can light with a fixture available through PerfectArtLights.com
