All Sales are charged in US DOLLARS. USA shoppers will not see any exchange or foreign transaction fees on their purchases.

Note to Canadian Shoppers
Welcome my good friends and art collectors in Canada.
•All sales here are charged in US Dollars ( USD )
BUT, You have 3 separate $CAD shopping options:
CANADIAN $ SHOPPING CART LINKS: More and more items have special links that will take you to a separate Canadian Dollar shopping cart hosted away from my main site*. Look for these links within the Item Description. Everything is processed in $CAD. You must have Canadian Shipping AND Billing address.
By INVOICE: Email me and I will either send you a secure online payable invoice or create a link for you to make $CAD purchase online via my $CAD web cart. Its very easy and no bother on my part.
Way-Back Machine: Go to BrettVarney.ca , right now. This is my old relic $CAD website. I have not logged-in since 2015 - but, it is still live and taking current orders. Everything there is still available and contains artwork not listed on my main site. Some of the contact info is incorrect though.
*The separate Canadian Dollar Shopping cart is securely hosted by Mal’s E-Commerce. (www.aitsafe.com)
USA SHOPPERS Only: No Sales Taxes ( *see exception ) applied to your order AND
No foreign transaction fees and NO exchange rate fees. All sales are in $USD.
(*Exception: As of Jan 2018, Washington state is requiring that any sale made online to a WA state delivery address, must have Sales Tax applied and collected. Other states are now following this rule as well )
Canadian Shoppers Only:
PST and/or GST/HST is due for all orders sent within Canada.
Some items have special Canadian Dollar shopping cart links in the item description. If you purchase via those links, your item and taxes will be processed in $CAD.
Email me your order, and I can create a online invoice for you where everything will be processed in $CAD.
If you find yourself at my old Canadian website, BrettVarney.ca , the $CAD shopping cart is still live and processes the sales and taxes in, ..well, $CAD.

Shipping Framed / Oversized Artwork
I usually don’t sell framed pieces (and some long matted pieces) on my website due to possible shipping damage and higher cost of shipping. But, I can still quote you shipping if you would like a piece framed. I’ve actually had only one piece get damaged during shipping - its just that the higher shipping fee, due to box size ( dimensional weight), that scare people if they are not warned ahead of time. I only charge the actual shipping fees I get assessed.
This site is designed to work on all browsers, desktop or mobile. However, I noticed recently that some user installed browser extensions may mess with the page layout ( like stacking all the images of my reproductions instead of a grid layout ) If you see something weird, please let me know. I recently experienced a YouTube video-downloader extension for the Apple Safari browser completely wig-out my Shopping Gallery page. Solution - temporarily disable all browser extensions and reload the messed-up web page.
Etsy Shop Policy
I would love to do a specially commissioned original for you. Prices are based on $ per square inch and whether I am working on paper or on the wood painting panels. Pieces on paper are much easier to ship. Check the prices of my posted originals to get an idea of pricing. Larger pieces will get a discounted per-square-inch rate. I guess, a kind-of, square inch quantity discount. :) Please contact me below:
