Art Resumé and Shipping Information

Paypal is secure and encrypted. This means that no one can change the amount of the sale. Interested art buyers should contact me for prices by email and then click on paypal to send a payment. When payment is received I will ship the painting/drawing/portrait.
The work is returnable within 3 days turn-around of receipt of art, provided it is undamaged and in the same packing. Most works can be shipped rolled in tubes. Tubes cost around $6.00 + cost of tube and packing to ship.
Framed works cost a lot more to ship, and costs depend on distance involved, and shipping method. Average is around $25 to $50 for larger works, $80 if across country with a lightweight frame and plexiglas.
This is the price for Jazz related works in metal frames size 24 x 18". I have other choices than what you see on this website so contact can yield other options.

Contact: Suzanne Cerny  for prices and information on purchasing and commissioning paintings.
