Pochade and Lily Buds; casein on board; 6.75" x 11"

The lily buds are taking their time.

While waiting for the buds to open, I stepped away from the scene  and painted it - including my new little field easel.  It's an old cigar box screwed atop a camera tripod.  I bought it from Gary Parks on eBay and so far I've been very happy with my little purchase!

I love my old field easel but it's quite heavy.  That's a good thing for stability in the wind and in general.  But I've been longing to bike to painting sites along the nearby bike paths and lakes.  With this new pochade box I'll have a light-weight means to do that.

But this will all have to wait until after the lily blooms.
