Caring for your Art Work

Artwork, whether an original painting or a giclée, is an investment.  With care, the artwork will last many years.  

Avoid hanging your artwork where direct sunlight will reflect on it, potentially fading the colors.   Keep away from direct heat.  When not hanging, always store in a climate controlled environment.  Avoid displaying your paintings where there is significant smoke in the environment.  

Oil Paintings: If you notice dust accumulation on your painting, use a soft damp cloth to lightly wipe it away.  Never use soap or harsh cleaners.  

Watercolors:  These are framed behind glass.  Use caution when cleaning the glass; spray the cleaner on a soft clean rag and clean the glass.  Avoid spraying the cleaner directly on the glass, as it may seep under the glass into the painting.  

ENJOY your collection.
