I have completed one year of Daily Painting Practice!
Enough celebration back to work. Remember yesterday I said I thought challenging yourself was important? Well, I really dove over the edge in challenging myself. My second year of Daily Painting Practice will be dedicated to doing Plein Air Painting. Yikes!
Of course I need to equip myself properly. Most Plein Air painters I see use a pocade box on a camera tripod. But my art supply budget is currently being spent on frames for my show. What can I do?
The art gods whisper in my ear , " You can build it yourself. we think"
So the handyman in me gets out an old paint box and a few tools. "I'll just cut this thing in half...."
I need a few more tools. This may take a bit longer than I thought but it still might work. " All I need is..."
A few more tools ...and some really good glue.
Of course I don't read the instructions on the glue where it says DO NOT get any on your skin until I have it on my skin. Also I am in bare feet and have walked through a few drops of glue that dripped on the floor. This is not going as smoothly as I thought.
Finally, if all else fails. Get the Duct Tape! It holds (3) 9"x12" panels, paint and a prayer book.
Here's the set up. Not bad. I even made some wet canvas carriers for 8x10's and 5x7's.
The best part is it all fits in this handy carry on case. I am good to go. All I need now....... is the nerve to do it.
