I built this box for the traveling painter. I have struggled to find a painting box that isn’t bulky with unnecessary moving parts, while at the same time being a reasonable price. This little box solves these issues. It is lightweight but rigid. It is perfect for throwing in your suitcase or backpack before going on a hike or trip. I wanted it to stand on its own as a piece of art, but also be highly functional and simple. This is the set-up you bring with you when just can’t seem to take your big heavy easel or bulky pochade box. I believe this will help stop painters from coming up with excuses why they can’t paint in a certain location or time of day.
