To help me 'keep it all together' in the studio I recently decided to purchase a new pastel box. The Heilman Design comes highly recommended from many well know and recognized pastel artists.... and so today I received my latest purchase in the mail... the Backpack Pastel Box.
A before shot of my work space.
A bit embarrassing (maybe).
I definitely need a new system to keep me better organized.
Apparently it costs quite a bit to ship to Alberta from the warm, sunny state ... oooor,
Mrs. Heilman had some left over Christmas stamps she needed to use up ;)
The beautiful Heilman Pastel Box hand made by John Heilman from California. To see more of his boxes and the art of both John and his wife I'll add a link to his site for you at the end of this post.
There are holes on the top to secure an easel, and a coupler below to secure the box to a tripod.
And can now fold it up to take the same pastels anywhere creativity leads me :)
What a difference...
from creative chaos to colour harmony!
I loooove it!
