and gift purchases are exchangeable up to one year, the Endico studio does not buy
back paintings or accept earlier paintings in exchange for current work.
Nor does the studio buy back for resale Mary's old work under any circumstances.
Collectors who buy directly from the Endico studio
are interested in Mary’s most current work. The studio cannot fairly
represent older paintings as "new" because they would not fit
into the chronology of her body of work.
The development of an artist is a slow
evolutionary process—one of continual learning and experimentation
through creative and technical growth. Older Endico watercolors are distinctive in that the
artist cannot "return in time" to paint a specific period. The
look, feel and character of earlier works can never be perfectly
Therefore, while numerous collectors may be searching for
examples of earlier periods to complete their collections outlining the
conduite, those issues
are best handled by third parties. The Endico studio is focused on
providing new work of the highest quality.
However, if a collector does decide that a painting purchased
years ago no longer suits their lifestyle, it may be donated to a museum
or local nonprofit institution such as a hospital or nursing home. There
the artwork can bring many more years of pleasure and instruction to new
Fine art galleries who represent only top quality
work may also be interested in Endico watercolors.
In case of donation where a record is needed for
tax purposes, the Endico studio may provide a statement regarding the
purchase price. Use the
