Inventing in preparation for travel

I'm excited about being able to participate in a Charles Gruppe workshop in Monaco and the French Riviera in October, but planning how to schlep all the art materials I'll need is a bit of a challenge. My French easel is just too bulky and unwieldy to take, but the only easel I really want, a Soltek, is outrageously expensive. Since I haven't been able to find anything lightweight that has a shelf for the palette, I've been forced into creating one.

Here are photos of my solution:

  1. Connie... great solution! I just got back from a painting trip in Ireland and had cobbled together a solution of my own, but I think I like yours better. I agree about the Soltek easel... great but pricey. Always good to see your paintings!
