Please scroll all the way down for Midweek Blues, Watery Wednesday and Weekend Reflections -thank you!
Sure am glad not to have to lug heavy cameras, lenses, tripods and what have you to get my "pic" or scene, but am still lugging around a lot of stuff.
In the coming weeks I'll show you some of the daily life decisions I take every time I paint. Most of them have to do with that I paint most of the time somewhere else than at home.
My pastel tote: 10 1/2 (long) 14 1/2 (wide) x 9 inch deep
A Flambeau product - 1/800/232-3474)
My most organized toolbox is my pastel tote. Love it: a LOT goes in there. Five bins for pastels.
Room in the side pockets for pastel pencils, a graphite and eraser and sharpener for my pencils AND a bigger battery operated one for my pastels.
you see, it really all goes in there!
On the other side: baby wipes (why? pastel can really stick to your hands and get under the nails) or my water bottle. It not only opens at the top, but there are zippers to open from top to bottom on the front side.Flat front and back pockets I use for more pastels and pencils. (Of course, one can use this tote for other things than pastels)
The shoulder strap that belongs to this one is kind of unhandy for me to walk with, so I use the handle. In my other hand the pastel paper, and am ready to go!

Beaverdam, 12 x 18 inch, Pastel, St.Germain*
Lucky for me I did not have " to go" for this one! When I saw this Beaver dam on Becky's (http://woodnookycreations.blogspot.com) blog, I was so taken with it, that I asked her permission to make a painting of her pic. That was somewhere in Oct. 2010. Last week I finally got around to finish it. Sorry, when I tried out the link it did not work, but it does come up when you type the URL in manually:)
Thinking about this week's Watery Wednesday and Weekend Reflections, oh joy, my pastel painting really fits in what 2sweetnsaxy at http:// Waterywednesday.blogspot.com (no. 128) and James at http://newtowndailyphoto.blogspot.com are asking for..
* P.S. Since I just posted Late Bloomer on Art Notes, I'll post this one next week on there with its Notes
