Today I'm working on....

A very small apocalypse painting in the cigar box pochade I just built. I love these little portable art studios - it's a self contained easel that uou can travel with, and make whole worlds- or the end of the world - happen on your knee, just by folding down the lid and starting painting. Planning a few mods to my pochade box - a fitted paletter first, tiny engineering challenge!
