My Good Friend Neil Hollingsworth

Coke Classic
by Neil Hollingsworth

It's the weekend, Zac & Joey turned 3 months old, my guy Brett has a birthday and I'm taking a few days off from painting and court TV. It's time to celebrate.

My good friend, Neil Hollingsworth, just emailed from Maine - he and his wife, Karen, are up in the New England area to attend Neil's solo show - opening tomorrow evening at the Tree's Place Gallery in Orleans, Massachusetts. If you're able, please go see his work in person - it's absolutely breathtaking.

the Paint On AlterEasel

I also just heard from an artist who recently bought Brett's Tabletop Easel - NJ wrote 'I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE this easel. Best investment I have made in my art in quite a while, and I now use it daily! It is exactly what I needed before I even knew what I wanted!!!'
Paint on NJ, and thank you for letting us know.

You can read more testimonials here - additional photos and details for the Tabletop Easel and the AlterEasel can be found here. Right now, we have 1 brand new AlterEasel available - the Tabletop Easels are temporarily SOLD OUT.

Have a great weekend ~

It is an oil painting.

Karin, one of the unexpected benefits of the AlterEasel is that it gives me so many more places to brace my arm so I can get those little steady strokes that can be so hard on smaller paintings. I had not realized how much I needed that until I had it! I've painted some of my best paintings ever since I've had it, and I really believe that the ability to rest my arm or my wrist on something has made a huge difference. Thanks again--I love it!

This is a really innovative design. I see that it has some weight to it also. I am intrigued.
