If you're doing a panel, please be careful with tape. My panel had "issues" because the blue painters tape that I used somehow decided to fuse itself to my panel after just a couple of minutes leaving dirty glue residue. When I tried to wash it off, off came the finish of the panel. Panic and some cursing ensued, but I finally got it mostly under control.
I wanted the panel to be multi-directional as design from any angle, as you should, if you're doing one. That way the work becomes interactive, as the viewer can move any of the panels any way they like in the whole crazy quilt of the painting. The panels will have velcro tape put on the back, and can be redesigned again and again at the will of the viewer.
If you are an Art League artist and you haven't picked up your panel, call the Art League soon to reserve yours. They're going fast. This is a great opportunity to participate in something both fun and lasting.
