Commissioned or direct orders

To order a painting or commission an artwork on Etsy or directly

If you buy on my Etsy shop, all prices are  indicated and you follow the rules of the selling platform which are in accordance with the European and French selling rules. You can however buy directly from me one of the paintings on this shop and as I will not have to pay the Etsy commission, for any direct purchase the postage is free for a registered delivery with insurance and signature whatever your country of residence. However, if you want a fast delivery by dhl express, chronopost etc…, I will indicate you the supplement to pay.

Direct purchase on this site

If you buy directly from this site, please contact me so that I can remove the work from the sale and issue you a paypal invoice. You can pay this invoice directly by paypal account or by credit card. If you prefer, you can pay by bank transfer, my IBAN/BIC is indicated on the invoice. I will send you the painting/drawing within 2 working days after receipt of payment.

For a special order

First think about what you want and then choose one or more pictures. I will explain how to choose in articles about the different subjects and techniques.
Then contact me by mail (franzainal at mentioning the following data:
– Your contact details and whether we can arrange a telephone appointment
– Indicate what you want: subject, (full-length portrait or house face, animal, landscape…) the technique and format etc….
– Tell me the method of payment chosen (bank transfer or paypal)
– Specify if you authorize me to publish a photo of the work on my website
– Attach a photo of the chosen subject,

If it is possible I will phone you (I speak English, German, Italian and French of course). This will allow me to better understand your expectations so that the work corresponds to your desires. You can send me more pictures  because a photo only shows a moment in the life of the subject.
After this discussion I will send you an estimate which will be an invoice by Paypal allowing a partial payment and which will indicate you the total amount of your order, the amount of the deposit to be paid, as well as my coordinates. A link on this invoice allows you to pay online by credit card or paypal account. However you can also pay by bank transfer, the IBAN/BIC being written on this invoice
the payment of the deposit online is confirmation but If you pay the deposit by bank transfer you will have to confirm the order by email
After receipt of the deposit, I’ll confirm by email the final receipt of your order and the estimated time for its completion which is usually 1 to 2 weeks except for oil paintings which require some drying time.
If you have a deadline for a gift, please let me know. Please also take into account the periods preceding the major dates (Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s and Father’s Day) which can extend the completion date as I then have more orders.
When the painting is finished, I photograph it and send it to you by email, I can then make some alterations according to your indications.
I send you the painting/drawing within 3 working days of receiving payment of the balance. Postage for direct orders on this site is free of charge whatever your country of residence for registered mail with insurance and signature but if you wish a fast delivery by dhl express, chronopost or another carrier of your choice, I will indicate the extra cost on the estimate.
