My mission is simple. To enrich the world around me with art.
Art being subjective will make a connection, or not, with the viewer and, mean different things to each individual experiencing the piece of art in question.
I would like to set forth an experiment. This experiment will allow an individual to set the price for the work that he or she would like to purchase. Therefore, the onus on value, my creative work, will be on you ,the person acquiring the artwork. All I ask is that when sending me your message with the price you are willing to pay, that you also leave a comment in regards to my work. A comment that is as honest as possible. Your comment is not conditional to the purchase but would be greatly appreciated.
Why?. Because every now and then, as an artist, I need to get a sense of where I stand creatively. I need to always strive towards that direction that calls to me and your commentary is part of that journey.
The base price of the artwork will consist only of the cost of materials. Picking up the artwork from my studio would further save you the cost of shipping. Otherwise, the cost of crating and shipping would be added.
`HOW IT WORKS:
On my website www.darwent-paintings.com , each item will show the base price and also show that the item is “out of stock”.
Once you have decided on the item you want to acquire, you would send me a message through the website, giving me the name/description of said item and the price you are willing to pay. Don’t forget to leave a comment.
The final price will depend on whether you want the artwork crated and shipped or if it will be picked up at my studio. If you want it shipped please provide your zip code and or postal code to determine this additional cost.
Once I receive your message, I will change the base price of the item you chose to the price you are willing to pay along with crating and shipping cost if applicable. I will then make the item on my website available for you with said item showing “in stock”. You will receive a message letting you know that your item is ready for purchase. Add the item to your shopping cart and proceed to checkout.
Payments are done through PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account and prefer to pay by E-Transfer, send payment to firstname.lastname@example.org
