WOYWW getting ready for the art show this weekend

two more paintings are drying on the cleared out table
hubby was complaining that I was painting it up again on the dining room tables
I am supposed to be up stairs in my studio room
but it is so far away from the tv and the computer ...

As some  of my best-est blog friends know...
 I am in a few art shows this summer and fall.
Yahoo !
So One thing that is good to have on hand
 is many reproductions
 of the original art works in print form
 I have been ordering prints 
on canvas and different papers
 of most all of my oil paintings
I needed a way for art show customers to be able
 to look through my prints in an easy way
 I decided to make a bin for that purpose 
out of an old patio table base
 Here is the remake in photos

Just trying to keep my costs down for this 
venture into art showing
Just in-case I'm a great big flop at it.
But for now 
It sure is getting exciting  dreaming

Jen said...

Wow--it looks fabulous. What a great idea. I could use one of those! Good work!

Nice! What a clever way to use that table. Where do you get your prints made? Have you ordered any online or do you go to a local place? I've been searching for a good place to get prints made of my artwork and haven't found anything at a good price yet.

Good luck with your art shows!

Kat that's an amazing make...love that you could look at the garden table and see that. Not me! And you won't be a great big flop at it...but remember, buying art is a slow burn thing for a lot of people...do have lots of contact details around for people to take, huh. we try to buy something on every 'major' holiday or life event...and it takes us ages...if it were just me choosing, it would take minutes!

You are so clever, turning that table into a print holder. Your art is beautiful, I'm sure it will all sell.
Have a great week.

That is one mighty clever bit of recycling! I would never have thought of using the table legs in a million years!! But didn't it work out well?

Loving the blue! There is no way that you will be a great big flop! Not somebody as talented as you!!!!

Now that is clever, who would of thought of that apart from you. Love the colour and an excellent way to store your work. Make sure you protect each painting from each other so they don't rub together. Put a cloth in between or a sheet cut up. I hope all goes well in your art show.

Happy crafting
