Dear Danielle123;

I love the fact that your Certificate is in both
official languages of Canada.  I live on the West
Coast of Canada and do not speak French but,
many of my family and neighbours do.  Nicely done indeed!!!!

I would add a date as well Danielle.

You don't have to give a certificate but it adds value to the artwork so in your best interest to do so.
You can write the title of the artwork below your signature, but it isn't required

If you intend making copies of the artwork, for example prints, then you need a separate agreement with the buyer so they are aware of the fact. Although you don't technically have to as you retain the copyright in the artwork, it is just good etiquette.

Whow, doesn't that look official!     :clap:

If you wish to have it identical in both languages, you may wish for:

 :thankyou: May lynn.   When I was working everything add to be bilingual even emails within our division because some coworkers were French and others were English.

 :thankyou: Nolan,  I will keep your info in mind re:    "If you intend making copies of the artwork, for example prints, then you need a separate agreement with the buyer so they are aware of the fact. Although you don't technically have to as you retain the copyright in the artwork, it is just good etiquette. "


 :thankyou: Annie  thank  you for noticing      I will do the correction pronto.

Danielle,

Great job on the certificate.  Hope you don't mind if I use it as a model when I make mine.

Danielle, your certificate looks really good.
In all my framing jobs over the years I had never seen a certificate to accompany
an original painting. Only certificates for Giclee prints.  Times are surely changing.
I like that you added that the art shouldn't be hung in direct sunlight
or fluorescent bulbs.  Might I add that any light bulb gives off uv Rays
and that the art should be framed in conservation (archival) framing. Including acid free matting,
Mounting, backing and conservation glass, to ensure its longevity.  :)

Thanks, Danielle.  Of course, that means I will actually have to sell a painting.
