well the Guerrilla has arrived.
The Guerrilla Painter that is. 9″x12″.
I have not been SO excited about purchasing anything for a long time.
Since I was a young teen I have admired and envied those with the fancy little travel easels.
Folks that took their plein air painting SO seriously – they invested in special tools.
Not absolutely necessary for painting plein air (which 35 years of working on location goes to show) but boy is it ever nice.
To grab that little box and know you only need to open it.
All the things at hand ready to catch the dawn light. The passing sail. The child at the shore.
So now I have my amazing Best Brella, a great new tripod mount and my folding stool all packed.
Here are some of the results – from the last few days spent on Gabriola Island.
