"Green Hot" --- SOLD



It looks like hurricane Ike is just going to side-swipe us here in Austin. It's a bit breezy outside, but nothing like predicted. There was some trouble with the internet last night when I tried to post, but I think it was probably just too many people home at once checking the weather online too often. : )

Below are a couple of photos of my plein air gear. I generally also include paper towels, wipes, and paint - it all fits nicely in my backpack. The pvc deal is a brush holder my husband made for me, and the box in back is my nifty panel holder from Raymar.

Where did you get that great tripod? How does it hook on as a base/stand for your panels?

Looks like tons of fun to me.

Love the pepper. Great to see a photo of your gear. I want to down size to that level. I feel like I am moving my house every time I go out.

That's an awesome pepper. And the stem shadow is good too.

Beautiful pepper, Carol. I love the reflective quality of it.

Thanks for taking the time to show your plein air kit. It's helpful to see other people's equipment. I was excited for you when you decided on OpenBox M. OpenBox M sells sturdy/lightweight Bogen tripods with the correct attachment head for their box. Can't say enough good things about Coletta and her company in Cody, Wyoming. I've had mine for a year and love it! Only wish I'd gotten it sooner.

Hi Carol: What kind of tripod do you use? I bought an inexpensive travel one, and the head is way too flimsy for use with the palette. I also got a used Manfrotto Art 190 with a special quick release head, and while very stable, is very heavy for hiking. Am off to Lake O'Hara hiking/painting for 5 days and would like something equally sturdy but more lightweight.
