Shark cage


Its not terribly pretty but it sure is functional.
We call it the shark cage but it really holds my paintings while they await a home.


My husband built this for me out of PVC pipe. I love it because, unlike lumber, it will not scratch the canvases and it is light enough to move myself. I am getting another for smaller works.
I just had to show off his handiwork.
Here is a bit of mine.

" By moon we sport and play" SOLD

" Six impossible things before breakfast" 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas

That's a great idea. Probably not terribly expensive to make either.

Clever, handy, smart husbands are great! Very useful and genius invention!

My husband, like yours, loves to assist in so many ways with things I need, shipping crates, frames, etc. Nothing better than someone who can see your problems and fix with a great solution such as your husband did! This was a great idea, and yes, I can see how lightweight it can be, always a good thing! Yay!

Very, very smart. Thanks for sharing this - my son is in art school so I expect there may be a bunch of canvases coming home this spring. Creative post title too!

I think your storage solution is Perfect - practical and simple, and oh-so-sweet that it was made by your hubby. I really love your "six impossible things for breakfast painting", just don't have the budget for it now. :-)
