This Thanksgiving break has been a really nice chance to relax. As I take it easy I am finally getting a chance to post up some pictures I took at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last Saturday. Even more exciting, I get to show off the prototype wet panel carrier my Dad made for me today. Here are the pics!
So I got some shots of the man in action, a close up of the cut channel and of course a picture of the finished carrier. It fits three 12″ by 16″ boards. As I mentioned above it is a prototype, we already have a few ideas for the next model like a plexiglass cover, a removable insert to allow for different size boards and a fitted cap cover. I am really happy with the box itself and the added protection it will give to the wet panels. Between trying to work outdoors or having wet paintings dry at home I needed a solution to protect wet paintings really badly.
So for the other good stuff, a few works from the Met:
So there they are. A fraction of the works on display that inspire me. Every trip to the Met is like a reawakening.
