Carmel by the Sea


The soothing waves of the Pacific Ocean in Carmel Bay. Beach decor in soft blues with an artistic, painterly finish.


Q: Are your prints glossy or matte?

A: Since shiny stuff went out in the 80s, luster all the way (what most folks consider matte).

Q: Can I buy the digital file?

A: Digital files look pretty blah on the wall, so nope! Unless it’s for a commercial project, then let’s talk.

Q: I need it for my Mom’s birthday in 2 days – will it be here?

A: Yes, but probably not in time for the cake-cutting. Sing extra loud and let Mom know it’ll be there soon. Prints ship in a day, canvas and framing in about 4, wood in 2-3 weeks.

Q: Is it vertical or horizontal?
A: Have a look-see at the image up top: If it’s wider than it is tall, it’s horizontal. Taller than it is wide, it’s vertical. There are also some squares thrown in here and there.

Q: Can you make it vertical?

A: Maybe. If there aren’t any words, 80.637% yes. Otherwise, 99.9% no. But ask to be sure.

Q: Did you photograph this?
A: Sure did. With my big fancy cameras and way too many lenses.

Q: Can you change this to yellow?

A: You can get anything you see in color, black and white or sepia. Want me to change a purple flower to yellow? No can do.

Q: What size is the image in your sample picture?

A: I’m asked this a lot! You should always pick a size based on your rooms and walls. Still not sure? Send me the dimensions and I’m happy to help out.

Q: I need two, do you have anything that will go with this?

A: Absolutely.

Q: Can you add some text?

A: Names, sure. Short quotes, maybe. 25 line Shakespeare soliloquy, definitely not.

Q: Can I get it in 13.75”x 20.25”?

A: Probably, let me know what you need.

Q: Is it matted?

A: Can be, if you pick that option from the ‘Type of Art and Size’ menu. Mats are white, by the way. 5x7s are matted to 8×10, 8x10s are matted to 11×14, 11×14 to 16×20. Easy to gift or pop into a frame.

Q: Do your canvases have colored sides?

A: Oh heck no ! The full image is on the front, mirrored on the sides. 1.5” deep, wood frame, very cool. Oh, with sweet hanging wire for those of us who usually have to put 5 nail holes in the wall to get it straight.

Q: Is it framed?

A: Can be, if you order here: Custom Framing

Q: Is the frame size the print size or finished size?

A: Print. Here are the finished sizes:

• Modern Black & Modern White Frames: 8×10 = 14×16 | 11×14 = 17×20 | 16×16 = 24×24 | 16×20 = 24×28 | 20×24 = 28×32 | 24×36 = 32×44.

• Classic Black & Espresso Frames: 8×10 = 15×17 | 11×14 = 18×21 | 16×16 = 25×25 | 16×20 = 25×29 | 20×24 = 29×33 | 24×36 = 33×45.

Q: I live in Australia/England/Thailand/Germany/etc. will you ship to me?

A: Prints and matted prints, yes, canvas, framed prints and wood, no. Unfortunately international shipping for heavy stuff costs more than the heavy stuff itself.

Speaking of international shipping: Your country might charge you duty or VAT tax. Ugh, right? Death and taxes, can’t escape it. They are basically an import tax between you and your country; they have nada to do with me. I can’t charge, assess or remit them.

Q: Can I get this on wood?

A: Yup, go here: https://www.lisarussofineart.com/product-category/wood-signs-•-art-on-wood

Q: I have this cool picture my Nana took of us, can you print it?

A: No. But go Nana!

Q: Help! How the heck do I decide what to order?
A: Right? Maybe this will help: Prints need to be framed. Matted prints are great for gifts, and you just pop them into a frame (½ the work is done!). Framed prints, canvas and wood are ready to hang (yay!). Framed prints and canvas are traditional, wood is more rustic and fixer-upper like.

Q: These prints don’t match my shower curtain after all, can I swap them out?
Q: These 5×7 prints are really small, can I get 8x10s instead?

Q: I didn’t realize I’d need to frame it, can I change it to canvas?

A: Yup, I want you to be 100% happy. Everything is made to order, though, so if you’re not sure how it’ll look, please send me a picture of your wall and I’ll show you.

Q: The mail truck drove over my prints, will you send me new ones?

A: Of course!

Q: Can I copy you?

A: Please don’t. © All images photographed & edited by Lisa Russo Fine Art Photography, LLC. Do not copy or reuse without written release.
