Moving Sale! Febuary 17th-21st!

After traveling back and forth to Europe over the past few years I have accumulated a handful of oil sketches, still life paintings and plein air studies that are being stored in California. Soon I will be moving back to Spain and instead of shipping all of the art work I would like to offer them at a discounted price for a limited time.The Moving Sale will run from Monday the 17th to Friday the 21st of February.Sales will be on a first come first serve basis. Images of the available works can be found under the Moving Sale tab on my website

Landscape Palette Boxes For Sale

If you are looking for a good alternative to the traditional French box easel then this is the thing for you!

The Landscape Palette Box is 25x35cm wide and 4cm tall(10x14x1.6inches). The box is built from strong, light-weight plywood which fits into any standard size backpack. The lid of the box opens horizontally, allowing for more mixing area, a place to rest brushes or your glass of Italian wine while painting.

The unique feature of the palette box is its attachment for the common steel tripod easel. A piece of rectangular steel tube has been welded to a mounting bracket that is attached to the box. Unlike the modern day Pochade boxes that attach to a wiggly camera tripod,the Palette box sits firmly on the steel tripod easel. By tightening the wing nut, the box can be adjusted to any height, for easy sight-size plein air painting. It's a very portable, easy landscape kit that is a bit easier to travel with.

If interested please contact Joe Altwer at

* Medium cups not included
*In America, the Jack Richeson Italian Field Easel
