I don’t have a direct online shop on this website for those who would like to buy faster because all my works are also on 2 shops on the Etsy platform and I wouldn’t want a painting to be bought twice at the same moment
These 2 shops are click here for my recent works and for older works . You can buy there the paintings presented on this website . The price of the works is increased on Etsy because they take a commission. When you contact me I deactivate on Etsy the works that have interested you.


– a portrait of a loved one or an animal, a lover’s eye, a landscape, a boat etc….
– in miniature on enamel, paper, tea bag, plant leaf, shell, stone, feather , mini canvas etc …
– on a larger format (to be defined) on paper, canvas etc …More details for …

First of all, think about what you want. For all the work I will need 1 or more photos (if possible) but as the techniques, formats and subjects are different, please consult the dedicated pages which will help you to visualise and choose what is possible.
Then contact me by email (franzainal AT mentioning the following datas:
– Your contact details and whether we can arrange a telephone appointment
– Indicate what you want: subject, (full length portrait or face  house, animal, landscape…) the technique and format etc….
– Tell me the method of payment chosen (bank transfer or cb/paypal payment)

You can call me +33 620460189 or I can call you if you prefer . I speak fluent English, German, Italian …… French of course, this can help me to better understand your expectations so that the work corresponds well to your desires
Once we have agreed on what you want, I will send you a quote-invoice by Paypal for the amount of the deposit indicating the total of the order + shipping as well as my contact details. 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

If you pay the deposit by bank transfer then you will need to confirm the order by email otherwise the payment of the deposit on the paypal interface acts as confirmation
After receiving the deposit, I will 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 will take a photograph of it and send it to you by email, I can then make some alterations according to your indications
