Pack and Mail 101:
I expected to have a very large bill at the Pack and Mail today. The two paintings I took to ship measured 15″ x 30″ plus frame and one 12″ x 12″ . The reason I thought it would cost a lot to mail has to do with my recent experiences of printing my own shipping labels through the US Post Office. A box that weighed only 7 pounds but was over 12″ in length was going to cost $39.00 to ship. I repackaged it to a smaller box and unwrapped one of the gifts to accomplish this.
Anyway, my bill totaled just under $45.00! And it is going FEDEX. All I can say is thank you God and Wow. Now I have an option to mail paintings to future customers.
One of my first Christmas paintings. I painted the canvas blue black first and painted the path and star on top. I was wondering what it might have looked like seeing the star at night and moving toward Bethlehem by the star.
