A Good Idea

This idea came from one of my favorite landscape painters Marc Hanson, it's so good I thought I'd share it. Marc did a painting a day last April and needed a place to store them while they dry.


I thought that you might be wondering what one does with all of the paintings. When I started thinking about doing this in late March of 2009, I thought about what I would do with all of those panels once they had wet paint on them and needed somewhere to dry and stay safe (from the cat... Sargent). I went to a the music store and measured the DVD wire racks. The tallest one holds 50, the shorter two hold 32 or so. They work out perfectly and would even work for 6x8's if you put them in there the narrow way. There are about 95 paintings in this photo.

That is too funny. That is what I asked my husband I wanted him to get me the past week for storing and and drying some of my paintings.
