Somehow I managed to delete the photo I took of today's painting (a landscape actually), so I decided to show a picture of my nifty panel holder instead, and post 2 tomorrow. My genious husband invented this for me so I could paint all the way off the edges of my panels without constrictions. The wood is masonite (with a white coating on one side here, but this is not important). He cut the shapes you see here and glued down two pieces. The third piece is moveable and uses friction to hold the panel in place. This is a 6"x6" panel, so you can get an idea of the dimensions. I love it but it really only works for these small panels. Any larger and they tend to pop right out.
