SEATED WOMAN IN INKDrawn from life in 2006, ink on 18"x24" white drawing paper.
One of my favorite drawings from life.
STORING DRAWINGSWe are scheduled to have a house guest in June, so it's time to organize and stow some artwork away. That way, our guest gets enough space to be comfortable.
I want to store the papers flat, ideally in portable, sturdy and inexpensive containers.
My latest idea for portable, relatively cheap storage for my drawings are the acid-free cardboard boxes sold to store things like wedding gowns in.
I bought four archival boxes from The Container Store for this purpose. I've assembled the boxes--easily done, once I ignored the instructions, with their Tabs A and B and C. The boxes are fine for the purpose.
But I still need an even larger box, for my widest pieces. It appears that a business called PrintFile has boxes that meet storage needs for my larger drawings. And the boxes are sturdier, with metal reinforced corners. Problem approaching solution, yippee!
