My April Show

Here's the front of the postcard to my and Peg's upcoming show next month.  I'll have between 40 and 45 paintings on display.  It may seem like a lot of paintings but the space I need to fill is quite large.
If you'd like to receive more information about the show, here's the link to my mailing list  and I'll  send my show newsletter out to you.

How I Hang my Paintings

(When placing a nail in the wall isn't possible.)

Supplies Needed: (I bought these supplies at my local art store, hardware store and the drapery hooks at JO-ANN Fabric and Craft Store.
  • stretcher frame
  • aluminum screening
  • canvas drop cloth
  • stapler
  • eyelet screws
  • hanging wire
  • drapery hooks

Stretch the aluminum screening over and around the frame and staple in back.

Stretch the burlap drop cloth over the screening in the same way you would stretch a canvas (not shown). 
Attach the hanging hardware.

Your completed panel will look like this.

Hang and display your paintings.

Your paintings will appear to float in the panel and can be hung from any Picture Hanging System.
