PLEASE NOTE: oil paint takes a significant amount of time to sufficiently dry before the painting can be varnished and shipped. This process will take approximately 4 weeks. You will be contacted and updated when your painting has dried sufficiently to move on to the varnish phase. A variety of factors can effect the drying time, including the thickness of the paint and environmental effects, this may quicken or lengthen the drying process. Please reach out with any questions. There is no ability to shorten the drying time once the painting is complete to ship sooner.
