Metric Conversion Chart or
Inches to Centimeters Conversion Chart for Artists
Lately I’ve got more frequent interest about my paintings from art collectors across the pond. Invariably the shipping cost is a factor, which makes me wonder if maybe I should start painting on unstretched canvas. That way I could just roll up the painting and ship it in a tube. Then again, I’m anxious to try those Genie collapsible canvases. How nice it would be to easily package it, then my collector assembles it (it looks easy) and hangs it! However the price tag of $105 for a 36 x 48″ canvas, still has me on the fence. Has anyone used these canvases? If so, I would love your opinion.
Recently I’ve begun to list the dimensions of paintings in centimeters, in addition to inches. One day I got a little tired of always getting out my tape measure to look up the size and decided to make an Inches to Centimeter chart for common stretched canvas sizes.
Here it is, maybe this will be useful to others. If interested, I can make the original excel document available, let me know.
