I finally got that easel I have been dreaming of (for my birthday). It is a custom made H-frame studio easel made by a gentlemen in Penticton, B.C. and sent to me by Grayhound bus. He has a web site called EasyEasels.com. It is wonderfully large and very stable and sturdy and can hold extra large canvases. What a difference it makes. I don't have to worry about knocking my easel over while it holds a wet painting. What a mess that would make!
