Well, this post certainly was a senior moment on my part. I already talked about mailing this painting in my last post and forgot to modify the first part for this post. Anyway, without naming names the shipping service that I used to send the above painting must have really slung it around.
I have been shipping my work for decades and I know how to immobilize the work in cardboard and then immobilized in an outer box. It arrived with a the frame broken in two places so I had to refund the patron. Fortunately the painting is fine and the patron said he would take it to a local framer. I have never had a frame damaged before so I am going to consider using wooden crates for medium size paintings as well as large ones. I don’t want this to happen again.
My latest figure painting is coming along and I am considering painting it in the style that the original failed painting was painted in many years ago. I was going to use the complicated system I use now but I am having success with a more traditional approach to handling the paint so I will probably go in that direction. Who knows? I make decisions but the painting always starts talking to me and giving me suggestions.
Anyway, between my new painting, coming up with an idea for my next Youtube, and getting ready to play again at church, I am really stressed for time.
I am thinking of painting some more wildlife and here are some favorite examples but I don’t think I will paint a hippo . LOL!
