The Backs of Things

photograph of the backs of both the Plexiglas paper-holder and the drawing board
  • On the back of the Plexiglas -the blue tape secures four threads that, in turn, secure a small-prepared paper for oil painting. The threads will be used in the final mounting of the little painting and will enable the painting's edges to be shown and corners to lie flat.
  • The drawing board is made from eighth-inch-birch plywood (surface and corner triangles) and walnut (sides.) The back magnets have center holes that receive a knotted length of elastic cord - tied also to the corner triangles. The elastic cords keep the back magnets connected to the board when the front magnets are being repositioned. Outside dimension of the drawing board is about 28 x 22 inches.
