Announcements of new artworks, upcoming events, such as workshops, exhibitions, live painting events, and so forth. There are also tips on where to buy my artworks and everything else that touches upon my artworks!
I try to send my newsletter out about once a month, but due to the uncertainties of life, that schedule can sometimes be interrupted.
Sorry to see you go, but we understand. Unsubscribing is easy: just click on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any of my newsletters.
Unfortunately, I am not teaching workshops at this time. I do have some helpful tips, however, available on my Instagram feed traciehodgson.art and my YouTube channel – Tracie Hodgson : https://www.youtube.com/user/wallnut85.
We sell prints through a third party: look for the link at the top of the page, in the nav bar.
1. You should receive a confirmation email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Check your spam folder, if you did not receive it.
2. Your painting will be carefully packed for shipping. This can take up to a week, depending on the size of the painting and if it will be shipped stretched or rolled.
3. We will let you know once your piece is shipped, along with the tracking number so that you can track it yourself on-line.
4. Delivery! Please make sure that someone is home to sign for it. If this is impossible, then please contact the courier directly, to make alternate arrangements.
In addition to the cost of the artwork there is a shipping charge. If you are located in Canada, we will need to charge you tax as well. If you are located in the United States or Mexico, there are normally no taxes or import duties. If you are located outside of North America, there may be taxes or import duties levied directly by your government.
If your painting is on a canvas and is larger than 48″ on any one side, it will be shipped rolled in a tube, so as to avoid hefty freight charges. You would be responsible for getting your painting re-stretched, once it reaches your end.
Nope, packing fees are included in the shipping cost. The price you see on a shipping quote includes everything. There is no commitment when asking for a shipping quote.
The first step is to confirm that I am currently accepting commissions. Since I receive frequent commission requests, sometimes I am unable to accept more than what I’ve already got.
Please see my commissions page (link?) or email me at traciehodgson.com to check the status of commission availability.
Please check out my commission page (link?) There you will see the process outlined very clearly. Please note that I will never create an exact copy of an existing painting.
Again, this is outlined very clearly on my commissions page. (Link?) If you have any other questions please contact me via email at email@example.com
This depends on my schedule at the time of the order, how large the commissioned piece is and the style. I will give you a guesstimate at the time of your order.
While I work very hard to really listen to my clients and to create what they have in mind, it is art, so it can happen that a commissioned artwork does not match up to the collector’s vision. When this happens, 25% of the total invoice (50% of the initial deposit) can be used to purchase any other painting or a refund of 50% of the deposit will be returned to you.
Paintings with sides that are less than 48″ in length will be wrapped in bubble wrap and packed in a commercial cardboard box.
Paintings with at least one side 48″ or larger are normally removed from their stretcher bars and rolled up in a tube. You will be responsible for getting the canvas re-stretched when you receive it. If you have purchased a painting that needs to be stretched and you would like it shipped directly to a framer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make the arrangements. If you prefer to have a large painting shipped already on stretcher bars, we will need to ship it in a wood crate, which will increase the shipping costs significantly.
We usually ship paintings by commercial courier, but sometimes, if local, we can deliver artworks in person.
Paintings are shipped out from Stayton, Oregon USA (unless otherwise specified).
The cost of shipping is included in the “handling” area of your order form, and therefore included in your final bill. There is also an international shipping fee for paintings being shipped outside of the US. We determine the cost of shipping based on the least expensive option, usually ground transport. If you would like to arrange and pay for a more expedited shipping option, please contact us at email@example.com.
When we make shipping arrangements with the courier, we arrange for you to receive email notifications informing you of your package’s travel status. Upon delivery to the courier, we contact you to let you know that the process has started and to provide you with a tracking number. A signature may be required upon receipt of your package, so please make sure someone is there for the delivery. If you are unable to have someone present at the time of delivery, please contact the courier to make alternate arrangements, such as picking it up yourself, or having them deliver on another day.
The courier companies need a delivery address. This cannot be a post office box as a signature may be required upon delivery. They also require a contact telephone number and an email address so that the courier company can contact you with delivery information.
Your painting will be packaged within 5 working days of payment (not commissions). It is then delivered to the courier company where the time that it takes for the delivery varies, depending on the area to which the package is traveling. Our shipping costs are based on the least expensive form of shipping (by courier), usually ground transportation. If you would like to arrange and pay for a more expedited shipping option, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When purchasing directly from our website, the only form of payment available is PayPal. PayPal will allow you to pay using a credit card, even if you don’t have a PayPal account. Alternatively, you can contact us email@example.com to pay using an alternate payment.
All prices are in US dollars, unless otherwise specified.
We understand! Paintings can be exchanged for a credit on traciehodgson.com for the full amount, minus any shipping costs, so long as certain conditions are met:
– The collector has seven (7) days from the date of reception to advise us via email that they would like to return the artwork, and fourteen (14) days to pack and ship it back to us by recognized courier, at the collector’s own expense.
– The artwork must be returned in its original packaging and in the same condition as when it was shipped. It is important, therefore, to take care when both unpacking and repacking your artwork.
If you have a change of heart after the 7-day return window has passed, you may return your painting by packing and shipping it back to me, at your own expense.
Once the painting has been received, it will be carefully inspected for damage. If the painting is in good shape, then you will receive a credit for the price you paid on the painting, minus any shipping charges, and a 20% fee. You may use the remaining balance towards the purchase of any other available artwork on my website.
The painting is owned by the collector once they receive it from the shipping company. It is the responsibility of traciehodgson.com to care for the insuring of the painting in transit. Whether that be a commission or an original painting.
Can traciehodgson.com share or license the work after the commission or original painting has been sold?
If you would like to own the copyrights to a painting please let us know, otherwise, the rights continue with the artist.
My story goes like this….
In my 20‘s I became a decorative painter. Painting murals became my absolute favorite jobs. I decided to follow that lead and went to France to study more about Trompe L’oeil murals.
This opened up a whole new world of painting, traveling, and working in some amazing homes.
After a car accident, painting for many hours became impossible so I stopped painting. I started designing websites and doing marketing only to find that I soon started missing painting.
I missed the expression, release and joy of creating.
Now, I paint in short bursts as often as I can. I love to paint loose and intuitively with bold bursts of color.
Are you curious about the science behind paintings that jump off your walls, evoke emotion, make you stop in your tracks and that you never tire of?
