Working from the Beach House
12x16, collage of handmade paper on panel
Another example of working from small spaces, this week I am at the Outer Banks (OBX) in North Carolina with the extended Nelson Family Clan! This is our tenth year at the beach and for the last few years I have been making a point to be making art. This is the piece I am working on right now, I plan to have it finished tomorrow and put it up for bid on the blog unframed. Coconut Palms, if you are interested in buying it via the blog, stay tuned.
Just like working from the RV, the most efficient way to work in this small space was to keep my papers packed in grocery store bags according to color, bring a stick easel, and prepared panels. I have a few more prepared panels with me which are mostly small sizes. Small sizes work well in a small space and they also are completed in less time, making them much less pressure -- this is good for vacation work!
