Artist's description:

The Road Home is one of my favorite paintings. The cottage with the blue roof is set against blue sky with a white road running in front of it. It comes into view as you are climbing a mountain and you emerge from a color-encrusted cavern. I have had a long climb, many years in different environments to get back to where I am at home, painting, with my colors. You know how it is when you've been travelling away from home and you step out if the plane, allow the air to embrace you, and know you are home in the only place that feels that way. This is that moment, when after the long journey, home is there.

The rates prelisted are estimates. The actual rates depend on the carrier rates I can negotiate to your location. When rates are lower, I refund the difference less packing materials.

A signature is required at delivery.

Professional quality artists paints that are archival and rich in pigment (with no fillers) suspended in clear, archival medium for paint stability and maximum light refraction (for luminous color).

The Road Home is a substantially sized canvas, exuberantly colored and lushly painted with many layers on 1.5"/ 3.8cm deep, gallery-wrapped canvas over heavy-duty stretchers. There is a brace at each corner on the back for stability. Several layers of satin, archival, uv-filtering varnish has been applied to protect the brilliance of the colors.

These are the responsibility of the recipient. They vary from country to country but you can calculate these additional fees at
