breaking it in

I'm doing it! I'm putting paint directly on my Open Box M palette. Having a good time! Started a painting from a reference photo of an apple tree taken a couple years ago at the Albert Handell workshop. Every time I come across this photo I want to paint it. I think the time is right for this size, this medium.


  1. Thanks so much for posting this photo - it shows a great example of simplification of value masses and structures into a pleasing abstract design, a concept I'm currently trying to get my head around. Seeing this has made it much clearer.

  2. Hey Barbara!
    I picked up one of these early this year for oils and love the craftsmanship. I own two of them now and will never look back. Have fun breaking it in. :)

  3. Thanks Annie and Brenda for your comments!
