I am looking for any creative ideas/solutions that some of you may have for storing wet oil piantings until they dry. After many years I am just starting back working with oils and plan to work quite small at first, nothing over 8x10 or 11x14 or so. I no longer have a proper studio space so I am trying to figure out a simple (and inexpensive) way to store these little paintings while waiting for them to dry. Has anyone else had this problem? I'd love to hear how you solved it
I simply hang them on my wall. In that way, I can see if anything needs tweaking.
If you wish to drown, do not torture yourself with shallow water. (Bulgarian Proverb)
I used to do that, when I had more wall space including a studio. Some of the ones I am doing are on panels also. I'm thinking some kind of rack set up?
GO TO OFFICE DEPOT AND GET A FILE SEPERATOR FOR AROUND $ 10. THIS WILL STAND YOUR PAINTINGS UPRIGHT AND HOLD AROUND 6 PAINTINGS.
Wow, terrific idea. Thanks.

Here's a cheap system for storing and transporting wet oil paintings: pizza boxes! Stack them with a wet painting inside till they are dry. Great for plein air painters to keep the car clean too. Since you paint small, there should be no problem with size. Good luck and keep painting.
