It was like looking out into the horizon - the needle-like raindrops exited the sky and fell on the ground with ferocity. The pools on the street aided in further magnifying the chaos. Heaven, Earth, and Hell all appeared to have blended in together on this rather chilly afternoon. People, too, blended together - all going about their day with quiet resignation as the pouring carried on.

Stretching and Framing Process
Typically, paintings are delivered rolled or un-stretched. However, a rolled canvas must be stretched before it can be displayed. We understand that stretching rolled paintings can be a hassle so we take over this process for you - at no additional cost to you. This means your painting comes with wood stretcher bars that have been attached against the back of the artwork so you are able to hang it on a wall once you receive it.
To enhance the beauty of the artwork, we can also custom frame your painting at a discounted rate. For this, we begin by adding a white “liner”. A liner is made by wrapping a small wood frame in fabric. It creates a nice separation between the painting and the frame. Then, we add a quality wooden frame of your choice. You can choose from three contemporary classic options: walnut, mahogany, or simple black. Either way, the frame is sure to bring out the best in your newly acquired artwork.
Shipping and Returns Policy
AFM ships the artwork directly from our gallery in the U.S. through UPS. Depending on your purchase, your unique artwork is either simply stretched or it is stretched and framed, prior to shipment. Orders are shipped between 3 to 5 business days to accommodate the stretching and framing process. A tracking number is emailed to you as soon as your order is shipped.
The return period for all orders is 14 days and begins the day the order is delivered. We will refund the full amount back to you once the artwork is returned in its original condition.
