Clean the Box Day, celebrate it if you wish!
Today was my annual "clean the box day." I must admit I am not a cleanliness freak (did I hear some giggles?) But once a year, a day I dread, I take everything out of my plein air box. I wash the foam inserts and scrub the box clean. Then I gently clean each pastel and assess the need for its presence or replacement. My impetus was the arrival of my new Terrages and Thin Lines. Since I use only the Heilman backpack box space is a premium. It measures only 10.5" x 13.5".
I must admit I feel incomplete when I am not able to do my daily painting. It truly is my vitamin. I continue work on the large gorge painting. :-)
