La Beze


How will my order be shipped?

Orders are shipped via FedEx Home Delivery (residential) or FedEx Ground (commercial). Express delivery is available for an additional charge. Contact the studio to place an order that you would like express shipped.

How is shipping calculated?

Shipping on your prints is calculated at 15% for framed, 10% for matted, and 5% for unmatted prints. Our shipping cost takes into account: packaging materials, labor to carefully package your piece, and carrier costs including insurance to guarantee your picture will be delivered with care.


What size is this picture?

Every picture can be printed in one of these sizes: 4x6 matted to 8x10, 11x16 matted to 16x20, 15x22.5 matted to 22x28, or a custom size. After framing, it will be larger, but the exact finished size depends on the frame style you choose. Canvas wraps (unframed) are available in 12x18, 16x24,24x36,30x45, and 40x60. Custom sizes are also available upon request. Other sizes may be printed as a special order for an additional charge. Contact the studio to place an order for sizes other than those listed.

What color and style of matt do you offer?

All matting is white with John Galbo's signature just below the print in the right corner and the image title and limited edition number in the left corner (sizes 16 x 20 and larger). Weave and color can vary slightly - please let us know if we should attempt to match mat weave and color with a previous John Galbo purchase.

*Can I get this picture in a different frame than the ones that are represented with the image?

The frames that are represented with each image have been selected by John as what he feels best complement that particular piece. However, if you would like to order a different frame than what is shown as an option, you may do so for no additional charge by ordering over the phone.

How does John create the Impressionistic effect?

John responds: On a weekend trip to shoot flowers in a greenhouse in Canada many years ago, I discovered an old cracked and distorted mirror that created interesting reflections - I photographed the reflections rather than the flowers themselves and thus began my impressionistic photography. I love to experiment with different photographic techniques using filters and fast film, and occasionally embellish some of my photographs with oil pastels or acrylics (for example, 17 Rue du 8 Mai).


Other than the website, where can I go to see John's work?

John's artwork is featured at many fine art shows across the United States throughout the year. By entering your information in the guest book, you will be placed on our database, and we will send you information regarding any art shows that will be in your area. Please email or call the studio for specific inquiries regarding a specific art show or gallery near you.

If you live near Saginaw, Michigan, you may want to stop by the studio to look at artwork and frames. Please keep in mind that we are a production studio and not a gallery, therefore we ask that you make an appointment ahead of time so we can be sure that we will be able to give you the personal attention and plenty of time to choose what you would like.
