"A Virtual Gift for Prolific Painters of Petite Pieces"

It occurred to me I should post my latest find for those of you who paint daily..or thereabouts….and like moi, struggle with the weather, lighting, etc. to capture those little painted treasures on film…er digital chips… or whatever you want to call ’em. Thanks to my partner, friend, lover, husband and all around great guy who loves to cruise Ebay late at night, I now have a nifty little photo cube, complete with lights and mini tripod, with which to capture my little gems. It is called a photo cube and here is the link for it. They run in the neighborhood of 40 bucks and believe you me, it is 40 dollars well spent. I have mine set up in my studio on a side table and no matter what time of day it is or if it’s raining cats and dogs, I can just whip my painting from easel to photo cube and presto, the deed is done. Which gives me more time for the things I love to do.

So that’s my little virtual gift for those of you who paint petite pieces of pure poetry perfectly.

Here’s an affiliate link for the cube:

    Dreama: BIG thanks for sharing this. I knew about cubes, but it never occured to me to use them for painting, doh! I’m gonna order one this morning. Ha, no kidding about the changing seasons making it harder here in snow country. (You talked about that in the other photo cube post.) Thankyouthankyouthankyou!! Have a great weekend.ReplyCancel

    Roxanne–the ‘cube” diffuses the light so you shouldn’t get glare or shiny spots–you may need to play with how close the lights are on the outside of the cube to get it the way you want, but it does work.
    And Kelley–they make these cubes in the mondo size as well! My hubby ordered me one for Christmas (60 inches) to shoot my larger works (I already have lights I am hoping will do the trick) I will post after I have used it and let everyone know how it goes. Keep your fingers crossed….:)ReplyCancel

    I like this idea! does it cut down on glare from the lights? (always looking for a better rig!)ReplyCancel

    You know, Dreama, I’ve seen them advertised, but never thought about the DAILY paintings! I always thought “great, but my big paintings won’t fit in there!” – but the DAILIES! YES! Your husband is wonderful! Thank you!ReplyCancel
