Artistic Canvas (unframed) VS Artisanal Museum Warp on Fine Wood

A an oil painting is created on canvas. The canvas is made out of linen or other cloth material. It does not have a board or a frame on the back in its natural form. It looks something like a thick blanket. 

 

An oil painting can be shipped in 2 ways.

 

1 - artistic canvas with the painting rolled up in a tube

Its just a loose canvas without the skeleton frame on the back. Its rolled up carefully and placed into a hard tube. such method is the safest and the most economical way to transport an artwork. We provide free shipping for this method all over the globe. The size of the package is small and it does not take much space . This decreases the chances of outside damage almost to 0. The paint will not crack or get damaged in any way as well. Please refer to the photos below for more details

 

2 - Artisanal Museum Warp on Fine Wood

When a canvas is stretched ,its mounted onto a wooden skeleton frame just like in the image below. The staples are not visible and are present only on the on the rear side. The sides of the painting are painted so it can be hung as it is without a decorative frame. The painting does not need a hanging wire, the middle of the top stretcher bar can be hung onto a longer nail or screw, longer paintings can be hung with 2 screws or nails .  We use the best fine wood for the frames. The frames are hand made by specialist carpenters and a lot more  durable and resistent than stadard stretcher bars.  Our frames always withstand shipping to far destinations and chnages in the enviorment. This kind of frame will last for a very long time. 

 

You can add stretching to a painting during checkout, right before you click “add to cart” . You have an option called “painting”. There you will find 2 options “Artistic Canvas (Most Popular Choice ) Free” and “Artisanal Museum Warp on Fine Wood” . If you forgot to order stretching during checkout, you can add it here.

 

A package with stretched paintings is a lot heavier and larger than a painting rolled up in a tube. We provide free shipping of stretched paintings only to USA, Canada and Mexico. Shipping stretched paintings internationally has additional cost . You can purchase the additional international shipping of stretched paintings here 

 

If you have any questions about stretch or paintings, please don’t hesitate to ask. 

Customer satisfaction is our main goal.

I just received my first painting - “Misty Mood”. It is absolutely stunning! The colors are so vibrant. I have been following Mr. Afremov’s work for some time and am so glad I was able to purchase this beautiful work. Thank you!

Leonid's recreation of "Fall Marathon" arrived to our newly-built home yesterday. Breathtaking! My wife expressed tears of joy when the painting was first removed from the package. We cannot recommend Mr. Afremov's work enough. You will not be disappointed, but you will be moved! Thank you for sharing your amazing artistry with the world.

I recently purchased and received one of Leonid’s original oil paintings (Spring Emotions). The painting exactly matched the photograph that Leonid had displayed on his online store, down to every last brush stroke. It is absolutely breathtaking and I can’t thank Leonid enough for selling me this masterpiece! The customer service from his sons David and Boris was excellent; they spent considerable time with me on their online chat facility before I bought the painting and made extra effort to make me feel at ease when the delivery of the painting was delayed by an extra week due to drying issues (the original had only just been painted the week before). Living in the UK and with Leonid and his family based in the US / Mexico, it can be a slightly nerve wracking experience taking a leap of faith and buying online, without actually seeing the painting in front of you. Based on my experience, I can whole-heartedly recommend buying from afremov.com. I hope my testimonial encourages a few more people to buy from this wonderful artist! My special thanks to Leonid and his sons. Nick (Reading, United Kingdom).

I just received my painting. It's even better than I expected....I came right back to this website and ordered 3 more. When my wife finds out what I spent, she'll be POed, but they're worth it. Thanks for doing what you do. Jim Brueggemeyer

I have bought two of your paintings, Mr. Afremov. When I found this gallery, I could not believe it. The painter himself, of those incredibly beautiful, full of life paintings, was selling his paintings at prices I can afford!!! I saw your paintings quite a while ago, and saved them to my computer to use as backgrounds. To think that I could own two is still unbelievable to me!! I have not received them yet, I can't wait!! Thank you!!
