What is a good way to store a lot of paintings.
I don't have those shelves like those in a studio classroom.
I also don't have the space to build them, my studio is a bedroom/office/studio.
How do I store my paintings from large to small.

I paint over the old canvases after I have taken pictures but I'm kind of new to the whole painting thing so there is not much lost.

The worst place your art can be is in storage. Equally as bad to be on your own walls. Temporarily give them to friends to look after on their walls. Or best of all sell them, for whatever you can get for them. If not for money, food, drugs, booze, sex.

Selling non-commissioned art is disingenuous at best.

I suppose many people would not understand, but I am correct.

I would be absolutely ashamed of myself.

Also, why create art if not for yourself?

Who better to enjoy a thing than its own creator?

Not really sure what you mean but maybe I know the feeling you're describing. The idea of trying to sell my art makes me uneasy, as it's all a very personal process. But I know that great work comes from a place like this and I happily buy art from friends knowing that they aren't commissioned for me specifically.
If someone wants to give me money for something that I worked hard on, and they'll genuinely appreciate having it, that's pretty rad and seems like a balanced trade.

Well, if you're trying to convey an emotion with your art, not sharing it at least with your friends kinda defeats the purpose.
Unless that's not your agenda.

So this is kind of a tangent but along the lines so I'll shoot.

Releasing works posthumously, or destroying/leaving a final will to destroy your work; thoughts?

I would much rather have the unfinished work released, like DFW. leave behind a mystery and room for speculation.
personally I look forward to death and only hope that I have created enough art of interest before then that at least someone will find it interesting or hopefully inspiring.

I agree I like to give it away.

I've never heard of Van Gogh,Picasso or Salvador Dali only making comissioned art. We all can't have our Peggy Guggenheims or Medici's.

Honestly I thought this thread died a long time ago.
