organized the whole Island Art Expo event that I took part in last weekend. It is not a closeup of Ruth, my model, but at least it does show that I was working from life. I had a table set up next to me with a Masterson sealable palate and brushes, etc. I don't like to take along everything I own for painting on site so I have a couple of carryalls that hold everything I need and this portable easel. I had a spotlight on a tripod just off the picture edge. I had no idea what to expect for
the room I was to work in so I tried to be prepared for a variety of possible situations. It has taken a lot of trial and error over the years to come up with a suitable way to pack for these trips. It is never perfect but generally I am able to manage nicely.
