Terms and Conditions of Use

Welcome to my online store! Michael Temple Art provides artworks and related services to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop within this website, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully. Or just trust me.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!

It is my intent and desire that you are completely satisfied with your purchase. If for any reason at all you are not happy (buyer’s remorse, or the painting doesn’t match your couch, etc.) I will return the full price of your purchase upon receipt of any product that is returned to me within 30 days. If a painting arrives to you damaged please inform Michael Temple Art upon discovery. Purchaser and Artist will come to mutual agreement as to how to remedy damage.

Artworks

I  usually sign my name on the reverse side of my artwork. I’ve tried before to put my signature on the front, but it never improves the look of the piece, so I don’t do it. Unless you want me to, that is. Some paintings are dated and some are not. I don’t consider dating my paintings important but if you do, I’ll put a date on them.  Most of the paintings offered are on canvas and are stretched on wooden frames, unless marked otherwise. Paintings will be sent either flat or in mailing tubes depending on what I deem efficent and appropriate. Artworks will be sent without frames; unless otherwise marked. It is recommended that artworks on paper, glass and board be framed by you as well as canvases, if desired. Sizes listed are basically accurate, although there may be some slight variations. Most of the paper artworks have a white unpainted border. You may want to “float” them in a frame or use a matte border. In other words, don’t decide on the frame until you get the artwork. I will reveal any condition issues of which I am aware, such as paper folds or patched tears in paper or canvas. Artworks with any such issues will often be priced less.

Shipping

Art works will be sent within 14 business days of receipt of your order or sooner unless other mutually agreed upon arrangements are made, or if extenuating circumstances cause a delay in shipping.  Rush orders may incur additional shipping costs.
Michael Temple Art will pack and send your order by FedEx or the US Postal Service unless other mutually agreed upon arrangements are made. For local (Los Angeles) possibilities for pick up or delivery of your artwork,please contact the artist at [email protected]
