Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send photos.
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:
I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

It would be easier to send the photos from my ipad mini. Wha email should I use?
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Hi, You can try emailing your images to***@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email. Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin. ~Nora

I sent the pics to the***@******.*** last night. Did you receive them? Thanks, Kairn
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the heads-up on emailing images.
I will certainly let you know when they have arrived to me.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Do you expect them today? If the admin is not working and won't be forwarding my email from last night with the photos, I'd be tempted to just cancel. What do you think?
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
I do not know when images will arrive to me; there is not a set time for such.
The decision is entirely up to you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Sorry I wasn't able to send the images directly to you. At this point I'd like to just cancel. Sorry for the inconvenience.
