A good way to transport framed paintings
Today I am delivering some of my work to a gallery. A while back I learned from Michael Fisher how he transports his paintings in old disposable towels held closed with strapping tape. Michael told me that he acquires the towels at thrift stores for a modest fee. He prefers this method to bubble wrapping his paintings for local deliveries. A friend of a friend gave me some of her old towels (thanks, Debra!) and I am trying this method today. Last year, because I did not take proper precautions, one of my frames got dinged. I learned my lesson. This seems an adequate and economical way to handle painting delivery.
