01/17/2006: "Problems with Panel"
Well, one of the down sides of being very productive and taking time off from exhibiting is that I'm building up a rather large stock-pile of "in progress" paintings. On top of that, I'm painting with panel now, which means I can't just hang them from a thumb tack like I used to do with my wet canvases and I can't lean them against the wall because I have carpeting and two little hairballs names Lemoni and Osiris. So, I am running out of places to put these things while they're drying.
Does anyone else have this problem and if so, what have you done about it? I was thinking of installing some kind of rail along the wall, but since my studio is also my livingroom and the only things I found at the lumber store were horribly ugly and would be a bitch to install.
Any suggestions would be welcome. I think I'm up to about 25 paintings in progress, currently around 10 have seriously wet paint.
