What is THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRINT AND AN ORIGINAL?
An Art Print is not an original painting. It is a commercially printed representation and is offered in two ways: on "Smooth Fine Art Paper" and as a "Canvas Print". You choose to order either as "Just the Print" meaning it is not framed or you can add a frame. Prints on Canvas offer a wonderful option for the collector who isn’t a serious art investor/collector. One of the benefits of purchasing a print on canvas is that, while they look just like the original, the cost is much more affordable. This allows collectors to easily start a collection and purchase several of their favorites to create a grouping. If you just love art for art’s sake, this is a great way to go. Personally, I can not distinguish between an original and a print on canvas from across a room.
An Original painting is one that is 100% painted by hand by me. An original painting is considered an investment that appreciates each year as an artist continues to mature and expand their career. Originals are more “collectable” meaning they would be the best return for the money plus resale value of original artwork is higher.
You can commission me to paint an original painting of any art that you see on my site.. Like snowflakes, no two paintings are identical due to nuances in color and brush/palette knife strokes. A commission allows you to control the size of the original to fit your space and adjustments can be made in colors, if you desire. Examples of commissioned paintings below.
