Shipping has become a significant factor in the "who to buy from" decision. Several large mega retailer (eg. Amazon Prime) are advertising to free shipping. How they are doing it is beyond us. However we have been forced to look at our shipping practices. We currently ship medium to very large orders through FEDEX and small orders  and many foreign orders through the United States Postal System. When you place an order on our website you are automatically charged a flat fee shipping charge for any shipment within the continental United States, currently  that charge is $14.50. Outside the continental United States the shipping is an estimated $60.00. However in the case of very small orders (ex. one book or a very small item like a paint brush, we will normally ship through USPS and only charge the actual shipping when it is less than $14.50.

Wholesale customers are always charged the actual shipping which in many cases is significantly higher than $14.50. However the savings on the total items wholesale purchased items (3 or more of an item total purchase must exceed $125.00 will more than offset the increases shipping.

When you place an order on our website, the standard shipping cost of $14.50 or $60.00 (Outside of the Continental US) is added to the order. Remember , the website merely puts a 30 day hold on those funds, the funds are not removed form your account until we actually ship and then we charge your credit card and the funds are transferred from your account to our account. For some cases for orders outside the continental US , the estimate $60.00 is sufficient to cover the actual shipping, but on the cases of larger orders, it may be necessary for us to contact the customer to request additional monies to cover the actual shipping costs.

May 6, 2017 - In two weeks we will be in the middle of the 2017 Ros Stallcup 3 Day Paint in Seminar. I have lost track of how many times Ros has been with us for a seminar, but I know it has been from at least 2010 because I have computer records for those seminars. I thought some of you might enjoy revisiting the past and see some of the many projects that we have done with Ros. There is still time to sign up for the 2017 Ros Seminar that begins on Friday  May 19th.

MAY 5, 2017 - Finally got busy  on a long over due project. In 1984 Sherry Nelson did this picture of a Hummingbird on Glass. I finally got around to having Al Tessing make an 12" x 8" frame (March 2017) and today I found a piece of burlap to use as a backing and framed the picture. I painted the frame, it took 2 coats.

An Oldie but Goodie - This product has been around ever since I started Painters Paradise, even

before the days of the Website. We continue to sell this item several times a month....
