Building a Wilson Street Studio Plein Air Easel

Posted on May 18, 2014 at 6:38pm 2 Comments

A number of artists have asked us where we got our special, plein air easel set up.

When I tell them that I built it, they all want to see plans. To respond to all those requests, I've put together a PDF, which goes through all the steps of building your own Wilson Street Studio plein air field easel.

Hi Keith,

I just received notification that my membership has expired (again!). I'm paid up. You deleted my profile in the summer and it was reinstated (less all my posts) in late June as there had been an error. It appears that the same error has occurred. Membership was paid June 1st.

Can you please ensure that my profile is NOT deleted?

thanks,

Pat

Hi Keith,

I posted in the Discussion Section a link to my word document with the OPAS painting labels. I was thinking of printing them myself and realized I've haven't seen any mention of them. Maybe we should send out to everyone on the show so we all have the same labels. Not sure if you want to send an email too just in case. See you Thursday.

Thanks Keith... if you haven't found someone else already, I could do it. How do we proceed?
Thanks Thomas.

Hi Keith, I replied to you "President" email... I also asked in regards to your other email... what's involved in looking after the membership? Number of hours per week? Meetings? Etc...?

Thank you for getting things going for me Keith, and welcoming me into the group.

What do I need to do to get a member card? I would like to take part in the 12x12 challenge and hope to meet some members of the group soon.
