What a great idea! Love it!
MIGHTY CLEVER JOAN!! AND WONDERFUL SKETCH TO BOOT!!! JR discount store is located just around the corner from the college where I work -- their cigar store sells some of these wooden beauties --- so useful - but this idea beats them all! BRAVA!
How clever are you and Mike. What a brilliant idea and saves a lot of money. Love the idea.
so great to great to get caught up on all your blog posting. You have been a very busy lady. Love your little pochades too!Happy Spring
You are so lucky that Mike is so supportive and handy!
Hi Pam, I know you do some many beautiful paintings from plein air or still life sets. These little boxes are great.Have a great weekend.Joan
Hi Lin, Yes, they would serve you well, great fun. Especially when you do your plein air watercolor paintings. Have a great weekend, Joan
Hi Dors, Thank you. I love blogging it's a fountain of knowledge from other artist. When I saw this idea on one of my searches, it was slightly different. Mike used his idea of using chain instead of brass strips. It worked out rather well. Have a great weekend,Joan
Hi Susan, Thank you for stopping by, I will do the same shortly. I see a beautiful painting you just posted. Have a great weekend,Joan
Hi Joan, Thank you and yes he great. I dragged him to the cigar store against his will, but then he really got into the project. Have a great day,Joan
That's a great sketch on your pochade box. Really lovely. It's fun to see your set up vs. the sketch. I enjoyed reading your post. I don't think I could get enough of my stuff in such a small box!
Hi Virginia, Thank you for the visit. I just use this little box at the kitchen table. My stuff is all over the house. When we go out to paint I think a pack horse is needed. Oh, well, the life of an artist. Hope you are feeling better, will pay you a visit shortly. All the best to you,Joan
That looks so handy & light-weight!
