US 80 Bridge

7 x 5, oil on panel

This was my second oil sketch using my home built thumb box pochade. I started this inside my car, which worked well until I dropped a brush. This bridge and its rust always fascinates me.

After I got home, I started thinking about how I would store unused and wet panels while I was traveling, so I built this panel carrier. It has 6 partitions, and because I used too small 1/4″ square stock I couldn’t find a latch to fit, so had to make my own.

    I like your thumb box pochade. You should sell it…or find someone
    who will manufacture it for you.
