The Grid Update

The Grid at the End of the Summer 2011

In case you are new to my blog and don't know what "The Grid" is, I thought I'd give an update. 

A couple of summers ago, my sister suggested I use a window frame to prop up my lake paintings while they are in-progress.  It's in the guest room.  I expanded the concept to use it as motivation to keep me painting.

I had a habit of starting work but not finishing it.  This project really helps me move forward.

Here's how it works:   If you stay as a guest with us at the lake, then you get to pick your painting-in-progress from the "grid."  You also pick your frame at that time. Then, I finish the painting and deliver it to you.

It just so happens that horizontal 8 x 10" masonite panels fit perfectly in the grid, up to 15.  I am aiming to fill the grid each summer, but I haven't gotten to the goal yet. Too many other fun things going on. But I know it is keeping me painting more than I would if I didn't have the grid project.
