About Purchasing Original Paintings

In response to many requests, we are offering a number of original paintings for sale in the online store.  The paintings are all either framed or mounted on scrolls.  Some of them adorn the walls of Charles and Bettie Chu's house.


When you purchase a framed painting, we will ship the existing frame.  We think that all of the frames are beautiful and bring out the best in the painting.  They all include UV-resistant glass, and are insured against damage in shipping.


All of the paintings are being sold without copyright.  That means that you own the painting, but you may not make copies and sell them.  The copyright remains the property of Charles J. Chu.  We have already made prints from some of the paintings on sale, and we intend to make more.

Previewing paintings

We understand that purchasing a painting on the internet takes a certain amount of faith.  An on-screen reproduction never exactly matches the original in detail or color.  We have made our best effort to present accurate images on the site.

Short of seeing a painting in person, the next best thing is to see a hard-copy photograph of the painting.  We will be happy to mail you a photograph of any painting for a small fee.  Please contact us for more information.

Shipping and handling

The shipping and handling charge for originals depends on the size of the painting and whether it is framed.  A typical shipping charge for a framed painting is $100.  Scrolls ship for around $20.  Framed paintings are shipped in a crate with their glass in place.  We insure the shipment at no extra charge.  Our standard shipping method for framed paintings is UPS ground.  Scrolls and un-framed paintings ship via priority mail.  We will ship paintings within 5 working days of the order being placed.

Return policy

You may return any product for any reason within 10 days of receiving the product.  It must be shipped to us postage-paid, and in good condition.  Please contact us for more information.
