Spring has finally arrived here in Minnesota! I love painting outdoors this time of year.  The branches of the trees are still very visible, with just enough of the yellow-green foliage of spring to soften the edges. It’s like being able to see the support skeleton underneath.

For my 30th birthday, last Sunday, my partner gave me the gift of a new pochade box.  I couldn’t be happier with it.  It’s something that I’ve wanted for a number of years.  This year, I finally put in the time, and did some reading online.  There are  lot of options out there, and I must say that I love mine.  I have the Blackfootbox from Alla Prima Pochade.  My box is very well constructed and very thoughtfully designed.  Who knew that you could fit almost everything you need to complete a painting in one little box?
