Please note: Shipping original canvas paintings requires extra care and time. Paintings are both heavy and often large, yet delicate and easily damaged. This piece will need its own special wood crate constructed, and it will then ship via freight due to its size and weight. To protect us both, it will also be insured for its full retail value. As a result, the shipping & handling cost (selected at checkout) is $600. This is typical for shipping fine art of this size. Please contact me if you have any questions about the shipping and handling process.
