My favourite easel (I have three) has probably seen better days. It has hair toggles tied round its legs for a reason that I don’t quite remember and I’m always getting my bracelet caught on the twisty adjustment thingies that stick up. I love it though. The old piece of board jammed in it has messages penned by the kids over the years and by my husband and, more recently, by my daughter-in-law and son-in-law.
One little known fact is that, when I paint at said easel, there is usually a Cockatiel on my left shoulder. You can probably guess what that means is usually down my back. Her name is Bird and she has attitude. Bought as a wild bird twelve years ago, I am still the only person she has tamed to.
