My studio space is limited, so I really like this spacing saving tip I learned from my Facebook artist friend.
Networking with other artists is just one of the benefits of Social Media sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Recently, I met Marc Hanson on Facebook. Marc is not only a talented artist, but a ingenious one at that. Marc’s simple studio space saving idea for storing small paintings and drying them too…
By guest artist/author Marc Hanson:
“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 6×8′s if you put them in there the narrow way. There are about 95 paintings in this photo.
P.S. I don’t know if it shows in that pic, but those things have a slight backward leaning angle to them. Keeps those panels more secure into the rack.”
This idea will be great for my small plein air paintings! I plan to make my own storage racks – thanks for the tip Marc!
