After being captivated by the beautiful images on The Next Canvas, I had to have one in my home. I purchased one online and received an order confirmation email. About 1 week later, I received a long tube delivery from Ethiopia that was my painting rolled up in a hard cardboard tube and protected by a cotton cloth wrapped in green thread. The painting was even more gorgeous than as shown on the website with strong vibrant colors on a sturdy canvas - the textures and brilliance of an original painting brings instant sophistication and authenticity to my home. Couldn’t be happier with the order process, payment and shipping, not to mention the painting itself! Love the Artist link on the website that provides background details of the artist. By owning one of the paintings, I feel a connection to the artist and the country of Ethiopia. A big thank you to The Next Canvas!
