re: http://www.artanywhere.com is offering one of Sari's paintings for rent...They asked if there were any specifications for renting, here is what Sari wrote...

                                                                                                                                                        Painting should not touch the floor...If setting down on the floor, please put down a piece of fabric to protect edges from dust or dirt since work is hung without any external frame...
  Do not lean painting against another painting...no stacking at all please,
  Do not hang work where people could bump into it...
  Do not hang work in a bathroom or near to a bathroom due to smell absorption...
 Do not hang near to hairspray, cigarette or cigar or cannabis or any other kind of smoke please...due to smell absorption...
  Please attempt not to touch the surface of the work with your hands if ungloved...
  No photographs of work allowed. (permission can be requested by email to Sari Grove at grove@sent.com)...
  Rental with intention to purchase is most desirable option for artist, please alert artist if long term intent to purchase is not the intent...
  The reason being is that renting a work of art can subject the work to many climactic conditions which will affect the work, either to the betterment or to the worsening; once a work has been rented, some may consider it used, others may value it more, depending- the privilege of borrowing an artwork at a nominal fee is, as such, a privilege, & the artist & the collector must trust each other in order for the work to be taken care of properly...
  It is in the best interest of the collector to meet with the artist in person before agreeing to accept a work of art as a rental, in order that a handshake & a promise from both to uphold good trade practices is obtained...
  If a business holding a rented work of art is found to be in jeopardy, such as, that business has not paid their rent, or their taxes, provincial, or federal, & that business is in danger of being distrained by the landlord, the artist reserves the right to remove his or her artwork from the premises, without notice, in order to protect the work from seizure, distraining, bankruptcy sale, or any other means a landlord or other creditor might use to obtain funds from the business that is in jeopardy...(the assumption will be made that rental fees or purchase fees will not be paid to the artist if goods are seized, & as such, gives the artist, the right to remove the work, since a rental payment is only 13 percent of total asking price & in no way constitutes ownership of the work in any such way at all...
