To ship and move the painting through doorways and into trucks for shipping, the canvas needed to be able to collapse. This required three folds with the environment kept above freezing. The acrylic polymer is very flexible when kept warm but if frozen can easily crack. I decided to send the painting up to Calgary in early September and placed in a warm storage room at the Livingston Place complex until I unfolded it in December. Here is painting is in my Vancouver studio ready to be wrapped in polyethylene.
The painting is now wrapped and strapped and ready to be shipped to Calgary.
