Buying an Original Painting

The Web can only show you a glimmer of the luminosity and texture inherent in my work.

Guarantee: With payment paid prior to shipping, your painting is delivered to your door via commercial carrier, either FEDEX, UPS or through the postal service. If you are not completely satisfied, you may return the undamaged work within 14 days and be reimbursed the price, less only the cost of shipping to you--usually less than a dinner out.

Payment for an Original "Elin"

Elin will be happy to accept several forms of payment.

  • Personal check drawn on a United States bank, or US funds from a Canadian Bank.
  • payment. I am a verifed seller.
  • Try the Personal lay-away - Elin also accepts payments on time, interest free. If you opt to pay using this method, shipping of the painting is free! Email Elin for more details.


Elin placed prices on all work on the site beginning in 2000. You may go to her New Work page and see how easy it is to find out the actual cost of the work.  The shipping cost and/or the tax on any of my paintings can be calculated by the size, or your location.  If the painting is under 24 x 30 inches, Elin uses the Priority Mail of the United States Postal Priority Mail Service for approximately US $25 to the continental United States.  Larger pieces are shipped using FedEx or UPS.   Please email Elin if you would like additional information.  Email.

Commissioning Elin to do an Original Painting 

Update 2020: I am only taking a few commissions now.

Most of my commissions are paintings of horses or family pets and are done from photographs. Small paintings (9x12 inches) of a single animal are relatively inexpensive and become cherished keepsakes for the people who commission them. 

On the Commissions Page  are examples of just such paintings. You can see how a commission comes together by clicking here. If you are interested in a commission, please e-mail me at to work out particulars.  You can also send your telephone number, and I can call you.

Cost of Commissioning a Painting 

At present, small paintings such as the 9x12 inch commissions start at US $250.  Larger paintings (16 x 20 inches up to 48 x 60 inches) start at US $500. Prices are also dependent upon the size and complexity of the painting.  If you have several animals and want them in one painting, prices will be higher. Please email me for a quote.

I'm continuing to gain recognition through having my work selected for juried exhibitions and through the growing collector email list from my Daily Paintings web site. The number of paintings I have sold and the prices of my paintings have increased steadily over the past several years, so now is an excellent time to purchase an original Elin painting!
