I decided recently that I would make some shadowboxes for my 6x6 inch paintings. I have made them in the past and they are a bit of a pain. They take a lot of time to prep and it is not always easy to get a couple of super calm days in a row so I can spray. However, I really want to have a grid of my little paintings on display for the studio's Mother's Day Tea on May 8th, so with the great weather forecast for this week I thought I might have a window of opportunity. I began on Sunday night and "operation white shadowboxes" is well underway.

I enjoy visiting your blog from time to time and love your paintings. Your idea of placing small works in shadow boxes is interesting. I am curious about how you keep them from falling out. How do you anchor them? Thanks.

Hi Jean, thank you for stopping in once in awhile! Well... dare I reveal my very high-tech secret? :) Yes! I actually anchor them with velcro! It works really well and this way they are completely and easily removable.

Thanks, Nicki. Genius. Velcro makes a lot of sense. And your secret is safe with me! ;)
