1 What size of artwork do I need for my space ?

You've chosen a painting you love but how will it look in your space?
A common mistake is to choose a piece that is too small. Here is the rule of thumb when hanging over furniture like a sofa, table, fireplace mantle, etc. The art should be at least three-fourths the width of the furniture and hung 6"-12" above the top.  In looking at the wall dimensions, your artwork should take up two-thirds to three-fourths of the wall. Of course it doesn't need to be exact; sometimes an off-center piece brings wonderful visual interest to a wall, but when in doubt, you can use that as a guide. And the art should be hung with the center point at eye-level.
If you find a piece you really like but it is too small, prints can often be made larger than the originals. 
2. Can I buy a painting on time?

Yes, I understand this is a large purchase. I am happy to do that and have done it successfully a number of times in the past. Call me and we can set  a contract  together. You choose the number of interest free monthly payments and when you are finished I will send you your painting.

3.  Can I pick up an original painting at your studio?

Yes, I love meeting the people who buy my work. Once you have placed your order, we can arrange a time for you to pick it up.  Check the "In Studio pick up" box at checkout and call me to set up a time.

4.  Can I preview how the painting would look on a wall in my house?

Yes, buying a painting is a high value purchase and I want you to be satisfied when you add my work to your home or office.  Email me at mandy@mandybankson.com with a photo and measurements of your wall. I will upload the painting you are interested in and you can preview it.

Before COVID if you are local to the studio, I offered a free installation service to heIp you place the painting in the best place in your home. I will offer this again, when it is appropriate.
