"Magpie" original oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Magpie"  8x10 oil on panel  

Went back through my photos from last years trip to Central City Colorado. I stopped in Jackson, Wyoming to paint for a few days and took a lot of photos. This magpie was sitting on a fence outside my cabin and I captured a few poses.
Took a few days off from painting while I was building frames and some other wood working and this was my warm up painting to get limbered up again...

Travel easel

Looking online for a good travel easel and didn't find anything suitable so I made this one similar to my old Coulter style box only smaller. This one is 9x12 and about 2lbs

The ring in the right hand wing holds my turp container. The plastic,nalgene one that Josh Been sells on the Prolific Painter site.

If all goes as planned this box will go to France later this year.....Stay tuned!  =]

Do you have information somewhere about how you make your frames? I envy you your ability to work so hard on your paintings, and now realizing you also work on frames really blows my mind.
