Gallery Wrapped (stretched) VS Unframed (rolled)

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 - rolled 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 won’t crack or get damaged in any way as well. Please refer to the photos below for more details

 

2 - gallery wrapped and ready to hang.

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

 

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 “Unframed (free)” and “Gallery Wrapped / Sides Painted (+$29.00)” . 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 cost additional $50 per every 2 paintings in the same parcel. 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.

Testimonials
My husband and I saw Leonid Afremov's art while on a cruise in the Caribbean. We fell in love, but thought to own a piece was unattainable. A year and half later, we finally found him on the internet and purchased our first painting in Spring 2016. We have since waited for his wonderful deals and purchased five more. We are running out of walls to hang the artwork, but have been pleased with every piece. We paid the extra for the gallery stretch and it is worth every dollar. One painting even arrived without being stretched, and after contacting Boris, the team took care of everything from shipping back to stretching to delivering once more. Thank you Mr Afremov for sharing your God given gift with the world. We are proud to display each piece with love.

I bought Dancing Under The Rain as a Christmas present for myself and I love it. It is now hanging in my bedroom and it adds so much color and cheer to my room. Today I picked up my second Leonid Afremov artwork (Misty Mood) - I couldn't resist such a great deal! I can't wait to receive it. Thank you for offering such great deals on your artwork!
