TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Art should inspire, it should not intimidate. Consider purchasing art that speaks to you; art that draws you in; art that is rich with a sense of mystery. When collecting, start with what you like and take into consideration the investment potential. Consider purchasing the strongest piece you can live with. Collector's taste in art usually evolves and he or she can quickly outgrow art that is topical and decorative, art that does not challenge them. Weber takes pride in offering art with a high degree of craft, consistency, and quality. Much of his work is media intensive, using a variety of materials to craft the work. Weber will do his utmost to ensure you are happy with your purchase. However, buying a piece of art is an important decision, so please take the time to read the contents of this section to make sure you are fully satisfied with the purchase and commission agreements before ordering. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please note that although the artwork's title of ownership will be transferred to you upon purchase, all copyrights remain the property of the artist.
Communication is vital in the success of your commission; don't be intimidated with your ideas. Tell us what you like and why you like it, in person, over the phone, by email or other electronic means. Once a solid idea has been communicated, the artist will render like examples, which in some cases, may include the room or environment in which the painting will be installed. All renderings are approved by the client along with a commission contract, which further explains the process and can be provided before ideas are exchanged.
After hearing client ideas, Weber will communicate whether or not he is comfortable with the project and the amount of client delegation required. The painting process begins upon the receipt of a nonrefundable down payment of 50% of the total price, with the remaining 50% due upon pick up of completed peace, or before shipment. Clients outside of the Los Angeles area will receive a photo of their commission before making final payment. Commissions can take up to 4-6 weeks to complete, depending on the complexity of the commission. This does not include delivery and shipping time.
PRICES AND PAYMENT
There are several factors that can influence the value of art, such as the artist's exhibition history, education, and bibliography; the work's size, media, and production cost; and finally, the provenance of a particular work and it's availability. Prices are subject to change without notice and will include the frame, if applicable. As editions sell out or where the demand for particular works increases, prices may also increase. Price quotes are valid for 14 days and will normally be quoted in US dollars. A price quote in other currencies is available upon request.
Because of the many factors involved in deciding the final price for commission work, it is best for both parties to go over each item one-on-one.
