You can do anything you want.

Chris asks…

Where do you go to make copies of canvas paintings?

My friend has BEAUTIFUL canvas paintings and charcoal drawings that she would like to make copies of to sell (easy money for her and i want a copy!) but she has no idea where to go to get the copies done. Could some one please let me know where to go to make copies? Thanks for any help you can give me!

Timo answers:

She needs to take digital high resolution pictures of her work, either a professional photohrapher or herself would be fine, a good graphic printer can make copies of a good quality to sell but you may have to pay quite a lot for this service and also the printer may require a minimum print run too.

Maria asks…

What is the best way to ship large canvas paintings?

I’m not comfortable removing and rolling the canvas because of the thick paint and some collage techniques. I paint large, mostly up to 48″ x 36″. Can’t pursue online sales without a shipping plan. Make my own box? These are unframed. My studio is cluttered and I need to move some paintings.
Best delivery service? UPS? USPS?

Timo answers:

Call auction houses or museums in the largest city closest to you. They should be able to tell you how to box them.
For large paintings in the range of 4+ feet, You would build a box around the painting with plywood and 2×4’s. The painting would sit between the walls with airspace, and framed within the walls so that it doesn’t move.

Carol asks…

I am looking for information concerning oil on canvas paintings by the artist L. Harding.?

I have several original oil on canvas paintings by L.Harding. I bought them between 20 and 30 years ago, in a home party setting. They are one of a kind, normally, with layered oil paint and all of mine are natural scenery. All of my paintings have the Certificates of Authenticity that came with them when purchased.

I am looking for the value of these paintings, and more information about the artist. Thank you!
