Shipping and handling charges is a common term which we see on art sites. Whenever you buy a painting do consider the shipping costs which will be added with the total cost of paintings. Shipping costs are the costs incurred by the artist for packing and sending paintings to the art buyers destination. Usually the charges come for using packing materials and sending services, courier or postal delivery charges.
Every art site mentions additional shipping charges added to the total value of the painting. This depends upon the destination the artwork is going to be shipped which is usually less within the country and more when sending to other countries to art collectors and art lovers.
Packing of a painting is very important as the buyer receives the artwork in good condition is very important. The paintings made of canvas or paper are packed differently. Framed paper work have galss which is very fragile and need great care while packing. As also canvas paintings need the care as they may get scratched or torn while transporting.
Tips for packing paper paintings-
Make sure the paintings are well dried before shipping. Otherwise the covering packing material will stick to the artwork and when removing the packing the painting may get damaged. Cover the painting with clean paper on both sides. Use thick water proof paper for protecting the painting done on paper. In case of thick paint or mixed media works consider the layer added to protect the artwork from getting abrased or damaged.
Packing of canvas paintings-
Boxes made of wood are required to pack wooden framed paintings. Consider finding a good carpenter to get customized boxes for packing as this has to be sturdy , big sized paintings farmed in wood do weigh a lot !
Many new art buyers and art lovers do like to buy paintings ready to hang as some art buyers do not have the resources to contact frame maker and also the time required for this. and it is also a fact as we artist know that making a single frame costs much more and you get concession of you frame many paintings at a time. It is also important that you choose the right frame to bring out the best in the artwork. The color of mountings chosen and the size of the mounting all affect the appearance of your artwork.
When ordering or buying paintings from any artist do inquire the price with or without frames. As usually the mentioned prices are without frames.

There are also other options for packing canvas paintings that are not framed. Tubular packing are available for packing rolled canvasses. While rolling a canvas painting cover the painting with a layer of soft cloth , if required cover with bubble wrap to protect the layer of paint on the painting.
When the painting has to be shipped in your own country the same care will be needed. While sending paintings over seas to different countries to art lovers it is important to protect and care for the artworks so that they reach the art lover collector in good condition. The artist has to make sure about the right correct address of the art lover and always have contact number and destination address clear. It is advisable to keep tract of the artwork once it is sent to make sure it reaches the destination safely.
How to art lover receives the painting will surely have an effect on your later sales!

|Beautiful Kerala Water Tourist Destination|
Breathtaking landscapes, I have painted a few landscape paintings in year 2000 and some few as the landscapes move from fantasy to reality There are places which I may have seen photographs but never visited. I have not painted these landscapes from any photo reference and these are original imaginations of my mind, though you may find similar places in case you have visited these places

As for my personal opinion I feel it is very difficult to copy nature, you just can't replace the original, but landscape paintings are a good way to bring outdoors inside your home. But however much I try to avoid landscapes they have this habit of coming up at one time or other and I end up painting on impulse an landscape painting.

The paint has been laid thick, this again create new problems as my paintings do not dry fast due to the thick layers of paints and usually as I do paintings in one sitting it sure takes quite a few days to dry off. Maybe will learn some new tricks for drying paintings fast in later years.
You can relive the memories and emotions when you view the place in the landscape, hence from ages and till date landscape paintings are the most hot selling among all genres of paintings world wide.

|Pink Light Shower a Symbolic Reiki Healing painting water color and wax crayons Year 2001 by Mrs Rizwana A.Mundewadi|
Kindergarten , We were then fascinated with colors. simple Crayons played a major role in putting color to our scribblings and drawings. Using crayons made of wax and water color for this technique I have made many paintings on paper where I have used crayons for drawing and covered them with water color wash. Using dark black color in water color almost makes the paintings glow, loved this, maybe will try out in some later years this technique , who knows.This painting is in water color with a layer of wax turning it into a more spiritual fantasy work.
Usually I do not make figurative art as spirituality divine is much getting over the physical body, and focussing more on the soul. The body being just a home, a temple, a boat, a place for the soul to exist and which is going to perish, and the soul, the shy soul, lies behind the cover and emerges gradually ....
Earth energy , the roots that help us to get the mother earth energy and keeps us grounded and well balanced. The divine energy, pink shower of light from divine sources, a blessing, a purification a shower of divine light, divine love.
The length of head hair, I love long hair, a symbol of femininity and female form, a symbolic representation of the dedication and tapasya , towards the path of enlightenment, a symbolic representation of being away from worldly pleasures and desires.
The pink shower is a painting done on paper in water color and then covered with a layer of wax crayons. The figurative painting is one of a sort as I hardly have tried this genre, post to 'selling happiness' and 'music flowing' and the latest one an symbolic figurative abstract 'my Green Tara".
