The originals of many Life Enhancing drawings and paintings are available to buy. This is indicated in the options and text. The description also specifies the size of the original (height followed by width) and the media.
Most originals can be bought unframed or framed. Unframed originals will be delivered in a cardboard tube. Some originals have already been framed by the artist and are for sale in this frame. In most cases you can choose the frame colour. Framed originals will be mounted with a mount in a colour complementary to the artwork and the frame. Some artists sell their originals unframed only.
Framed and mounted originals will have larger dimensions than those shown in the description, which relate to the artwork only.
All artwork is available as prints in editions limited to 20. The description shows how many prints remain.
Prints are offered in four of the standard 'A' paper sizes: A1, A2, A3 and A4. The dimensions are shown below in centimetres and inches. The dimensions used in the descriptions of drawings are rounded to whole numbers and are approximate. The A0 size is included because some frames are this size.
Sizes quoted in descriptions of artwork and prints specify the height followed by the width.
|A0||118.9 cm x 84.1 cm||46.8 in x 33.1 in|
|A1||84.1 cm x 59.4 cm||33.1 in x 23.4 in|
|A2||59.4 cm x 42.0 cm||23.4 in x 16.5 in|
|A3||42.0 cm x 29.7 cm||16.5 in x 11.7 in|
|A4||29.7 cm x 21.0 cm||11.7 in x 8.3 in|
Prints are offered in the same size as the original or the nearest smaller size and in smaller sizes, if applicable. Some artists offer prints in more limited size options.
For artwork that has significantly different proportions from 'A' sizes, such as square or long and thin, prints and framed prints will be in proportion to the original. In these cases the longest dimensions of the 'A' size option selected will correspond to the longest dimension of the original.
The print size shown is the size of the printed image. The actual print will be larger because it has a border. Framed prints have mounts in the next largest 'A' size. An A2 print will come in an A1 mount, for example. The frame will be additional to this.
Each print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist and specifying the unique number of the print in the series of 1 to 20. The 20 prints may be made up of different sizes of prints.
Most prints are offered in four options:
Unframed - the print will be delivered flat on an MDF back board, sealed in cellophane
Mount only - the print comes on a back board with a mount - ready to frame
Canvas frame - the image is printed on to canvas, mounted on a wooden stretcher frame - ready to hang. Not available ion A4 size.
