Packing the Paintings for Delivery


That’s the first step – then of course packing them into the car.  We had to take both John’s and my car as I’ve only got a fairly small Hyundai Accent.  Mind you though I’m quite amazed at what I can actually fit in the back of that car when the seat is down!

Once we arrived at the gallery there was the  taking down of the previous show as a first item to do.

The next step was to place the paintings all around the walls, in some sort of vague order of where they might go. This then required much walking around and around the room, swapping paintings to get them to all talk nicely to each other.  It’s very important that they all feel good together and look like a cohesive unit.

The next task was tricky and time-consuming. It involved blue tack, and a tape measure. Each work had to be measured to find the middle and the and then the desired eye level height on the wall also had to be measured . You can see my little bits of blue tack here waiting to be evened up.

It was really tricky getting this baby up onto the wall.  Defnitely not a one woman job!

Bit of a cheesy grin – Sorry – Simone took forever to press the shutter ! You Know how it is!!
