Frequently Asked Questions
- Q: What happens to the wine over time?
A: The wine color in your piece of original artwork will evolve over time. I have experimented a lot to create a multi-step process to ensure the color lasts long-term, but much like wine does in a bottle, the color will mature as it ages. That's what makes this so unique!
- Q: What if I really want the wine color to stay exactly as it appears now?
A: I totally understand that. If you love the wine colors and don't want them to change at all, making a print is the best option. If there's a piece you would like me to make a print of, contact me.
- Q: How do I care for my wine art painting?
A: Wine is a fragile medium. The surface is delicate and shouldn't be touched. I recommend framing works on paper behind UV-protectant glass or acrylic, and ideally place behind a mat to create a small space between the surface and the glass. Avoid displaying the art in direct sunlight. The color will shift slightly over time, but taking these precautions will help protect the piece from dust and light.
- Q: Do you offer free shipping?
A: Yes! I offer free domestic shipping with a small charge for international shipping. Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for me to process and safely package your piece of art.
- Q: But... do you drink it, too?
A: YES! Most of the bottle is used for painting, but I can't open a new bottle without trying at least one glass. I've often heard that folks are a little sad the wine gets used for painting instead of drinking, but the way I look at it... this way the beautiful wine lives on forever!
- Q: I don't exactly see what I'm looking for. Can you create something for me?
A: Absolutely! Information about commissions can be found here.
