I have a friend that works at Bancroft paper. They make rolls of white, heavy paper. They the use it to make paper bags. It is 10' wide and when it gets short they change it out. He brings me rolls 30'-40' long. Ben then paints whatever scene I want. Yes it does come down the wall and onto the floor. I made a pipe rack to hold the rolls and have 5 backgrounds on each roll. I can unroll to the one i want and roll it back up when done. It is very heavy weight paper. He uses tempera paints on it.

That's a lovely photo, Rick. On top of this, you've come up with a creative way of making backdrops. Then add a talented son into the mix, and you've got a winner.

My son's name is also Ben, and he's highly creative. My father's name was Ben, and he wrote and painted beautifully. Maybe this is the trick: if we want creative sons, we have to name them Ben.

Wondeful, DX6490

I especially like your creative use and recycle of a paper product.

One does not need "the latest" to create lasting images.

You (and your son) are proof of that.
