This is the shirt I wore the day I didn’t get shot. Isn’t that kind of ironic? The song illustrated on this shirt is about a guy who shoots another guy. My daughter gave it to me for Christmas, now it’s my favorite shirt. I’d like to call it my lucky shirt but I know it wasn’t the shirt that kept the bullet from hitting me, but the long odds of that happening.
Sing it Freddy! Meme stolen from somewhere else.
This ET / Abbey Road decal is on a tee shirt I bought when I had a vacation in New Mexico. It’s great to wear fun shirts when out painting in plein air.
This is another shirt my daughter gave me. Isn’t that a scream?! That crab isn’t from around here. Chesapeake Bay Blue crabs have big sharp points on each side. He has so much personality!
This is the recommended accessory for the plein air artist this season, the famous Ikea art cart. If you want to buy one, I should warn you, I only used it a few times and the retractable handle got stuck in the down position which would make it impossible to use. But I got the handle back up and now it’s staying up. I’ve been using it for years. It’s great because I can take as much stuff out there as I want to. Also it’s better than a pochade box for lugging your supplies down a path because pochade boxes don’t have wheels. It would make my back too tired if I had to carry any weight. I lay it down on it’s side to use as a taboret in Plein air, putting my palette on the wheel where it’s best balanced. I’ll get a photo of the way to use it as a taboret some time.
I have a beach cart with wide wheels for painting in plein air on sand dunes. The beach cart is an accessory for warmer weather though.
