Because a lot of art is so very amazing ( and precious) I thought an 8 part series on how not to destroy your artwork would be appreciated. If you would like all 8 pieces of advice on a PDF all you need to do is click www.newzealandpainter.co.nz and subscribe. I will email them out to you…and a free gift too.
Ok here we go…
eight / Children and pets
To protect my artwork from dogs or cats I make sure all of my paintings and prints are at least 3.5 feet (60 inches) off the ground. This should be above the height that a dog or cat might be tempted to rub against them. Or even worse, have a chew or a scratch! I would also be very careful not to have a painting just above a couch or a chair. Cats may want to have a cheeky scratch with their claws. The same height rule applies to young toddlers. Try your best to keep all of your art out of reach. Not only could they potentially damage the artwork, they might accidentally knock a painting off the wall and hurt themselves as well.
