I made two attempts at painting a bell pepper still life today but it wasn't working out---just one of those days. We ate it tonight, so no more pepper.
So instead of a painting, thought I would post a photo of my new cigar box easel sitting at the dining room table. The palette is glass and I love it. You can lift it off by that right hand corner space, underneath are my paints. Even though I ended up wiping off my paintings it was still fun and I think this set up will work nicely.
