I’ve been laying out some palette knife paintings on board – just blocking in the background colours. Unfortunately, I wasn’t paying attention to the back of the board and I did them upside down!
My father-in-law has been making the boards for me and has put notches in the back on two sides so it can be hung either horizontally or vertically. I always forget to check the back to see if the board is the right way up…..luckily I noticed before I got too far into the paintings today.
I’ve joked that my father-in-law should just put the notches on all 4 sides so I don’t have to worry about it…I’m starting to think that might be the best idea!
Perhaps I should put a sticky note on the stack of boards reminding me to check whether it’s right side up!
