Lately I have been selling a lot of unstretched canvases which means that the canvas is not on a wooden framework called stretcher bars. There are actually a couple of benefits to shipping a canvas that is unstretched. The first is that it easier to ship rolled in a tube rather than a large flat box and in this case it was going to Great Britain so it was much easier to roll in a tube and ship it off. It is much less likely to be damaged and not everyone understands that if the frame breaks it could puncture the canvas and severely damage the artwork. The wooden framework can be replaced easily but the actual work not so much! So that is a great reason right there!
The other reason is that often collectors will want to have a work framed and often the framer will stretch it as part of the overall pricing of framing. Any of these reasons are good but the rolled canvas was best in this case simply because of the distance of international shipping. The box might be opened at customs and the work damaged or not repacked properly resulting in damage as the journey to the collector continues!
So this work is now being enjoyed in London and I could not be happier!

Contemplative bold landscape painting with vibrant color blending, contrast and fine details.

This work was created on a high quality loose canvas and is shipped rolled in a tube. Simply take it to your local framer to have it mounted. Since it is loose canvas there are an infinite variety of framing methods. Simply pick the one that is best suited from the intended installation area.
Looking for some REAL FINE ART with a soul that is not mass produced with the same look over and over then you have found the artist for that and you have found a perfect example of this with this large statement piece!
This artwork is on gallery quality heavy triple primed cotton canvas. I include a certificate of authenticity that lists the materials as well as when the painting was completed.
