I think what I love about being self-emlpoyed as an artist the best, is the bizarre range of jobs you end up doing. A lovely gentleman from London enquired about one of my large paintings, Lemon Petticoat, and was happy to purchase her if I could ship the painting to France.
The professional courier cost half the cost of the painting plus insurance, so my hero or a husband, who happens to be a dab hand at DIY, came to the rescue with his box making skills.
This is the package that will be going with a courier tomorrow. I just hope they have a screwdriver at the other end!
