Hi there,

I'm attending a workshop in Taos, New Mexico for two weeks and need to borrow a French Easel rather than trying to ship mine. I was wondering if there is any chance someone from Albuquerque would be willing to lend one from April 24 - May 6th? I will take very good care of you baby!

Perhaps I can even work out a trade for a piece of artwork.

Any suggestions???

Mods... I hope this is ok to put here.

Thank you!!!

Gee, that will be fun! Lucky you. :thumbsup: Suggestions:
-- Contact the big supplier out there, Artisan (http://www.artisan-santafe.com/index.cfm), and see if they rent French easels. Or maybe they have some used ones. Or know where you might find a used one.
-- Same with the Pastel Society of NM (http://www.pastelsnm.org/main_html/contacts.htm). They might be able to help. Maybe they have an inexpensive want ad space in their newsletter.
-- The Art Center Design College campus bookstore (http://www.theartcenter.edu/bookstore.html) (in Albuquerque) might have used ones.

I bet Deborah could hook you up with something or one of her students may have a spare - especially, if you are offering, one of your paintings as a reward - great deal - ! hope you find something -
