painting installation day arrives
Couldn't have done this without D. She's a genius as she built a wooden box or envelope as I would describe it to fit the painting in (like a glove) seal it up, secured with rope for the drive to the clients and with out any freeway incident.
The size of the painting (5'x7') warrants special treatment as I have delivered five to six foot paintings on the roof rack on my car and nearly set them sail at 25 mph. Not a pretty picture.
But I'm thrilled with the installation, took a few hours and a couple of tweaks here and there (the painting is a hair off square and the wall lined up with it on the left is also a hair not plum) But we found the sweet spot and there it is. Won't be going anywhere as it's mounted on brackets inside, top and bottom and the brackets are mounted on the wall. With the bracket system, the painting stays on the wall where it should. Can't have party guests getting assaulted by a painting jumping off the wall, can we?
