Today I was working on converting a cigar box into a small tabletop easel. I was inspired to do so by the many artist out there that have already done this. It's great fun and I think it will work nicely. I'm hoping it will help contain my spread when I'm working at the dining room table. It's the spot right where I eat every day that has the most lovely light. I cannot resist painting there; perhaps the little box will make it less obtrusive.
