Frequently Asked Questions/Sales Policy
How long does it take you to do a painting?
I work on many pieces at the same time. Sometimes I will work on a painting for weeks and it still is waiting for that last brushstroke. Occasionally a painting is finished in three sessions. Some paintings never come to fruition. I paint daily.
Do you take Commissions?
Yes. If you are looking for a reworking of a theme I have done before or you have a particular idea in mind, send me a photo. I will begin the painting, send you an image of the early compositiong. If the client is happy with the composition they will make a 10% deposit. Six weeks to one month from the agreement to finished painting is required.
Can I pay in instalments?
Absolutely. And with payments set up, you can take the painting home too!
I like paintings to be paid off in 4-6 months.
How come I have to pay tax?
"Rosemary Leach" is a registered business, just like buying something at a store. And I like roads, hospitals, libraries and a good night's sleep.
Rest assured that the price is the same for everyone.
The artist's financial and creative investment takes place over decades.
The collector is an active participant in the artistic process. When a patron buys a piece of art they are supporting and recognizing something larger than the time it takes to create one particular piece.
In the short term, patrons allow artists to eat and heat their homes.
In the long term, collectors are actively making the world more beautiful, soulful, interesting, and meaningful.
That said, If you purchase three paintings at a time, I will offer you a discount.
Can I try this painting in my home first?
Yes. I totally understand patrons wanting to purchase with confidence. Because these are one of a kind items I ask for payment in full.
If for some reason you need to return the painting in its original condition within 7 days, you will receive a full refund.
How do I pay for my paintings?
Payments can be made with a cheque, e-transfer or with a credit card.
