Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are your paintings sold framed?

The price you see on this page is for unframed, unmounted work. However framing and mounting options are available. Shipping framed work can be challenging as breakages can occur. If there's anything specific you're after, we'll try our very best to make it happen! 

Why do your paintings vary in price?

Different paintings take different amounts of time and as you'll see, many are different sizes too. 

Can we negotiate on price?

The prices on this page are the very best they can be.

How do I know my details are safe?

We use the SquareSpace web platform and they operate a secure check out system for all card transactions on our site.

Are commissions available?

I have painted a range of weird and wonderful commissions over the years, from political leaders to company directors. If you have something in mind, get in touch. 

Can I buy a print of your work?

Yes. We now have prints of Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon, Keith Richards & Bob Dylan available.

Can you do a painting for me from memory?

I'm afraid not. The incredibly talented Stephen Wiltshire is your man for that. My best paintings are done with the best reference possible.

How long does it take to do a painting?

I get asked this a lot! The answer is, it depends. Sometimes things work out perfectly straight away. I've also had paintings that are worked on for a few days then just don't work out. When that happens and something is beyond rescue, I start again. 

A painting I like has sold. Can you do it again?

Each painting is a one off. I will never recreate exactly the same piece. When you buy a Bob Harper Original, it is just that. We can work together to make sure you get exactly what you're after though.
