ALL PROCEEDS GO TO CHARITIES Your artwork purchase goes directly towards advancing the gospel and helping suffering people around the world! John the Baptist Artworks (JTBA) sends all profits beyond operating expenses to missions and charities. Profits firstly go towards JTBA’s weekly outreach. (See About John the Baptist Artworks for more information.) All profits beyond this get sent to three major international Christian missions and charities. (See the Ministries Link Page for more information about these organizations and the work they do. To see what projects money has been donated to in the past, see About John the Baptist Artworks.)
PURCHASING ORIGINALS Certain originals are for sale. Check the Availability Status (located directly underneath each image in the Gallery) to find out its price or if it has been SOLD. ONFS stands for “Original Not For Sale”. If an original is not available for sale, you may order an acid free print or an archival quality print of the image instead (see PURCHASING PRINTS below). Alternatively, in certain circumstances you can also commission me to do another “original” of an original work that has already sold. Some originals are framed; however, frames can be removed to save on shipping costs. The price of an original which has had its frame removed will be adjusted accordingly. To purchase an original, please contact me here
COMMISSIONING ORIGINALS I work on commission in a variety of different media, styles and subject matter, including portraits and landscapes. If you would like more information about commissions, including a quote, please contact me here Make sure to include the following information: 1) Media (charcoal, graphite, acrylic painting, etc.) 2) Approximate size (in centimetres). Convert inches to cm. 3) Style (photo realistic, impressionistic, abstract, etc.) 4) Target budget (In Australian dollars). Convert your currency into Australian dollars (AUD). Prices are mainly based upon how much time it takes me to produce the work (as well as the price of materials). Photo-realistic portraits at any size usually take between 25-40 hours to complete. The minimum starting price for a photo-realistic portrait in any media is around $300 AUD ($300 USD). Portraiture in other styles aside from photo-realistic are usually cheaper.
PURCHASING PRINTS ALL images in the Gallery can be reproduced as Archival Prints (but please see additional information below). Archival Prints are premier fine art quality prints. They will not fade or go yellow for a lifetime and even longer. They are printed on 210 gsm Canson Rag Photographique paper. The prices are as follows: A4 (21 cm x 29.7cm; 8.25″ x 11.7″) for $15 AUD ($12 USD) A3 (29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69 x 16.53) for $30 AUD ($24 USD) REMAINING “ACID FREE” QUALITY PRINTS ARE ON CLEARANCE FOR 30-50% OFF. PLEASE SEE JTBARTS HOMEPAGE FOR FURTHER DETAILS. *WHILE SUPPLIES LAST* Acid Free Prints are meant to last a lifetime without going yellow or fading when put under UV filtering glass or perspex. Without these framing materials acid free prints should not go yellow with age, but they will eventually fade depending upon how much direct or strong sunlight they are exposed to. Acid free prints are on 300 gsm paper. A4 (21 cm x 29.7cm; 8.25″ x 11.7″) A3 (29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69″ x 16.53″) If you want to order a print larger than A3, you need to get a quote. The proportions of most artwork do NOT fit standard frame sizes. When specifying A4 or A3, the largest dimension will be sized to correspond with an A4 or A3 size, and the other dimension will be adjusted accordingly. If you do NOT want a print sized to the standard A4 or A3, please indicate the size you want. Images in the Gallery that are already prepared for print are indicated by the words “Prints Available” in the Availability Status (located underneath each image in the Gallery). If “Prints Available” is not indicated in the Availability Status, the image can still be reproduced as a print; however, it may incur a set up fee. (***I try to stay as up to date as possible with the Availability Status, but sometimes I forget, so please inquire if you have any questions***) Many images in the Gallery can be reproduced at large sizes at high quality. However, some images may be restricted by the size of their printing file. If a print has been ordered at a size that will compromise resolution quality, this will be indicated in the quote, and you will receive a quote for the largest size print available at high quality. Modern printing technology is making limited editions and numbered prints obsolete. I neither limit nor number my prints; however, I do sign them. In order to calculate shipping for your order, you must receive a quote. please contact me here
