-- I have been diagnosed with severe tendinitis in both my shoulders...the good news is that it isn't arthritis as originally suspected. The bad news is that I have months of physiotherapy ahead of me and can no longer work standing at an easel. Lately I have been working on the floor and my doctor suggested working at a drafting table, which I used to do many years ago.
So...with a heavy heart, I have to share that I have a well-loved easel sitting sadly neglected. He's quite famous, too, and has been featured in international magazines and on television. And he doesn't take up much room (the base measures 21x24 inches), holds canvases up to 7 feet in height and folds flat to lie quietly under a bed whenever we have guests and need more space. He is sturdy and reliable, always receives great reviews, and is a Jack Richeson Dulce easel made of sustainable lyptus hardwood (from the eco-friendly eucalyptus tree). I recently added two front castor wheels to make it easier to move around my studio but they can be removed if preferred. If you feel that you could give him a good home, please feel free to make me an offer (original value $364). - SOLD...thank you!
From the Richeson website:
Richeson Lyptus Wood Dulce Easel - The sliding mast moves independent of the painting tray, offering artists a greater variety of settings in which to work. By extending the mast to its highest point and leaving the painting tray in its lowest setting, artists are able to work on very large canvases. Alternately, by moving the mast to its lowest setting, especially where ceiling height is a concern, artists can work both sitting and standing allowing for
great versatility. With its H-frame construction and quad base, this easel offers great stability for working seated or standing. A slide and lock system adjusts the height.
