"Park Stream" - SOLD

Chuck Rawle emailed me today with another suggestion for packaging paintings safely for an airplane ride home. He says:

I usually either take with me or buy some wax paper at the grocery store. Then I put a sheet of wax paper between each painting---face to face works best. Then I tape or use a stretchy Velcro strap to hold the stack together. They take up even less room this way. If any of them get a small smudge on slightly wet areas, they are easy to fix when I get home, but this is usually not necessary.

Lovely! The assurance with which you put in the dots and dashes of the foliage is just wonderful.

This is so beautiful!

That's exactly what I've been doing for my trips to Denver lately! As a serious cook, wax paper seemed a natural choice. Now I know its a great choice for me as an artist as well! Tess Walls

I have enjoyed your landscapes! Very nice. I have gotten back to painting after taking care of my Dad unit he died recently. It is nourishing to the soul to paint your student, Jan Weaver

Thank you for the Waxed paper suggeston! I just faced coming back from Europe with paintnings too. I got back with no mishaps! But next time, waxed paper it is!

I enjoy seeing your postings each day! Looks to me like you should always be in a joyful mood.

I cut little strips (1/4" to 3/8" wide) of foam core and put them along the edges, on the part of the painting that will be hidden by the frame. Then I tape them together. It works well, even for very wet paintings. The Raymar carrier is great, but bulky when you are flying.
I am attending your workshop in Sedona....see you there!
