This painting is a gift for someone. Can I send it to a different address?

What is a ‘Stretcher Frame’?
This type of frame is made using 4 strips of a light-weight wood.  The frame is made to the dimensions of your painting. Your artwork is stretched over the frame and will be the same dimensions as advertised.

Do the paintings come already stretched?
Most original Diane Elsden paintings will come stretched and framed and will be sent to you at no additional cost.  This will be indicated on the product page.

What if I don’t like the painting when I receive it?
Buying a piece of artwork is a very personal matter.  It is important to us that any artwork that you buy is something you will enjoy.  Though we take every step to ensure our artwork images have the exact likeness to the paintings, we understand it is not always the case and images are not the same as viewing the artwork in person.

Our guarantee is that we will fully refund the cost of the artwork if you decide not to keep it within 7 days of receiving it.  Please return it to us within the 7 day period and upon receipt of the artwork we will issue you the refund. It will be necessary for you to pay the return freight only.

We expect the artwork to be returned in its original condition. It is advisable to insure the artwork to its purchase amount as it remains the property of the buyer until received safely by Diane Elsden Art.
