What is Certificate of Autenticity?

A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is a document, created and signed by the artist. It provides details like size, name, and media of thee painting as well as the name of the first owner. COAĀ guaranteesĀ the provenance of the artwork. When you buy a painting, your name will be stated on the certificate. If you are buying as a gift, please let us the name of the receiver and we can state it on the certificate.


What media do you use?

Only high quality materials are used to createĀ myĀ artworks:

a) Pebeo palette knifes, thickĀ tripleĀ primedĀ cotton canvas and quality oil paint;

b) thick acid free paper and permanent inks, and of course best quality watercolors made in St. petersburg.


Is the painting framed?

All paintings are shipped unframed.

Small paintings are already stretched on wooden bars, sides painted, so they do not require framing and are ready to hang.

Large size paintings have sides painted and are shipped rolled in a mailing tube.

This minimizes impact on environment Ā (no plastic packaging), protects the painting from possible damage, and provides you with a low cost shipping.Ā  Now you can chose whether the painting is shipped rolled in a tube or ready to hang.


How close are the photos to the actual painting?

Different monitors settings may be not the same, and you may see slightly different brightness or shades. Also every painting will change its look depending on the lighting in your room. Photos on this website are aimed to match exact colors of the actual painting.
