I brought in my portable wooden easel tonight. I cleaned it well with natural soaps and water, cleaned, neatened bristles, and arranged all my brushes, and set up all paints inside. I also placed on my blank 9 x 12 canvas, deep cleansed and airing out the wooden easel with the cool open window.
I am just sitting here comfortably with my little bear (not a real bear 😉 nested against my chest, just looking at this easel and its supply drawer that can be closed away, and the night sky feels very near, a lot feels near, nearer than usual. I will paint with these tomorrow, after all, am enjoying the view…:)
