How to Buy
You may purchase my artwork using the PayPal/Credit Card option (no PayPal account required). Use the Contact link in the menu at the top of each page in my site to start the process. Tell me which piece you’re interested in and I will get back to you with a quote and instructions for how to proceed.
Many of the things you will read on my site are written in the third person because, well, that’s just how it’s done. However, I feel the need to write about pricing in a more direct way. There is great debate about posting prices for fine art online and I too struggle with it. I have decided to buck tradition and be transparent, so that you, the collector, do not have to contact me to learn about the price of a piece.
That said, feel free to start a dialog with me about pricing. If you are interested in a work I would be happy to discuss reasonable alternative pricing.
2017 Linear Inch Price: $135
Total Price = (Width in inches + Height in inches) x $135
11 + 14 = 25
25 x 135 = $3,375
Each painting is ready to hang in a custom, high-quality frame.
I am not currently with a brick-and-mortar gallery. The gallery owner I was with recently retired. So, for now, I am self-represented. I do, however, feel that it is important to see a work of art in person before making a final decision. Photographs simply do not do justice to an oil painting. You cannot see the energy and texture of the brush strokes, you cannot make the visceral connection with a work of art posted online that you do when see it in person. Therefore, I am now offering an in-home trial period for your purchases.
Simply put, if you purchase a painting directly from me, you may keep it in your home for up to 30 days. If you are not satisfied, and the painting is in its original condition, you may return it for a full refund. You just pay return shipping and insurance and I will refund the full cost of the painting. Original shipping and insurance costs will not be refunded.
Margret is a contemporary realist artist working primarily in oils. She paints in a style informed by classical traditions, in a contemporary and naturalistic way, depicting scenes that explore universal themes of love, loss, longing, and spiritual connection to the world around us. She feels that the creation and contemplation of beautiful works of art is a vital antidote to the fast-paced modern world; it connects us and soothes our souls.
