I recently returned from a trip to Ireland and have been doing the preliminary sketches for a series of paintings based on the photography I shot while traveling.

At least three paintings will be going back to Ireland as thank-you gifts and so, never having shipped a painting internationally, I googled around and found a brilliant video on how to build a veritable tank around one’s art to protect it from the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.

Postal services, as we all know to our grief, are less than gentle when handling packages. I think these instructions will benefit anyone wanting rugged packing for their art, even if only shipping art across the state…or the country.

Enjoy!
