overall framed size: 33 in by 41.5 inches stretched canvas: 28 in by 36 in
First, I must apologize for knowing next to nothing about this painting. The artist, Paul Kelly, was clearly influenced by the Barbizon school, that plein air movement that predates this painting by over a century, as well as the impressionists from long before he was born. Not being on the cutting edge of any great movement, it is no surprise that I can find nothing about him. Derivative though his work may be, I find it enormously appealing and skillfully painted. In my local opinion poll, including mostly folks who just have opinions, this painting is universally attractive. I see something of the quality that comes through when illustrators and muralists take to canvas, can't explain it, but it has something to do with execution and I don't have the words to explain further. I don't love the framing and would personally prefer a more plein air style, but the opinions are evenly split on that. There is a Paul Kelly, painting in Ireland, born within a few years of this painting's creations, somewhat similar in style, also using more elaborate framing than appeals to me, so perhaps this is framed more for a Euro taste. I think the painting is fabulous, therefore the apology for lack of information. I purchased it in San Antonio, Texas. Wish I could tell you more, but if I knew more, I guaranty the price would be much much higher.
With regard to shipping, if you hate the framing, just tell me. I will ship without the frame, deduct $30 from the sale price, and also reduce the shipping to adjust for reduced weight and overall size.
Good job, you found the listing. So many of my shoppers are pretty new. Here are a few things that no one will probably tell you, but EVERYone will expect you to know. Customer Service is something that we have a right to expect when we are shoppers. All stores have a CS Department and it is busy all the time. If you require CS in this life, that does NOT mean that life sucks and the store sucks and your experience has been rotten. If it did, there would be no stores open anywhere in the world or else CS would have to put up bullet proof kiosks, right? As a shopper, your responsibilities, along with paying of course, include reading your email. CS issues sometimes arise prior to shipping. Maybe the wind crashes a shelf and your item is broken, no longer available. It would be best if the seller could inform you prior to that angry email from you that says , Hey, where's my stuff??? There are all sorts of reasons for a seller to contact you, things that don't come up in a face to face purchase. So, the shopping is easy, but check your SPAM/BULK filters for emails that could be important. Most of us are running little part time businesses. We work alone, have no fill in employee, and thanks to the internet, we make things available to folks all over the world, things we could never afford to truck around to some place where you might notice it. We all want things to go smoothly and we're all learning as we go. OK, now have a good time. Eva
Just in case I have been unclear in any way - 1 in every 20 packages has
some sort of damage, maybe something is shattered, maybe a single cup
has a handle cracked. This is a Customer Service issue. Arriving
damaged is not a complaint situation, not an attempt to ruin your life,
not a conspiracy to defraud you of $10 and certainly no reason to call a
package "not as described." As a rule, my policy is that I make a
refund for what has been damaged upon receipt of a digital picture of
the item broken beyond usefulness. Why? A. It saves you the return
postage that was standard [procedure in the days before digital
pictures. B. What earthly good would it do me to get a broken item
back. C. A teensy crack might not show up in a picture that might
transfer as 2 inches square on a screen, so let's whack it beyond
usefulness and make it obvious to me. Sometimes when there is breakage,
I actually find replacement pieces with another seller and make the
purchase and get them shipped directly to you. With my type of
inventory, each damage claim is dealt with differently, as the situation
demands. If you are unwilling to handle a possible damage claim in
this fashion, shop with another seller, please, please, please. Have a
nice life, but stay out of my store. After you argue about how you
really want a refund and want to keep your purchase also, what am I to
think? I do everything I possibly can to dissuade fruitcakes from
purchasing in my store, not because fruitcakes are no fun, but because
they are the first people to complain to ebay that I want them to do
something unreasonable like prove the item is really broken. If you are judgement impaired by whatever legal or illegal chemical means, please be irrational elsewhere. Plenty of stuff out there.

If you are buying more than one item, hold up on paying until we make sure the shipping isn't some crazy amount. If we can get them on one separate invoice and in a single box, there will be a shipping savings. The calculator feature is iffy on multiple purchases
