- Please note, larger artworks are sent via courier in a wooden crate or rolled in a tube and may include shipping costs.

Once you have bought a painting, I will contact you and let you know an estimated date for shipping.
Please note: when a painting is published on the blog, it’s newly finished and needs to cure before I apply a protecting layer of varnish and then send it.
A collector’s Kind Words
“John makes purchasing very easy and straightforward from start to finish, and he personalizes each package with a handwritten note on the painting and other lovely and unexpected touches.
Every interaction with him is a true pleasure.
Additionally, his blog on the creative process is humble, enlightening and uncommonly generous; every e-mail I receive on a newly completed piece is a little gift.
I am so pleased to have discovered John’s exquisite paintings, and I look forward to adding to my collection of his work in years to come.”
J. Roccuzzo, United States (2014)
