Easy-L easel and accompanying accesories are everything
they are claimed to be. Innovative design does away
with wing-nuts, and sticking drawers, delayed set-up
time, and pieces that break, freeze, or fall off. Durable
materials of light, varnished wood and brass fittings
take hard use. The pochade boxes are lightweight enough
to transport, stow, and ship easily. The tripod design
is wind-resistant, precision-locking, and adjusts to
uneven terrain. Out of the four umbrellas I have purchased,
only the Artwork Essentials umbrella works, due to its
easy any-angle attachment to boxes and tables, and the
structure of its perfectly-designed clamp. The Easy-L
easel (I have purchased four, in various sizes) will
be the one you will keep.

wanted to let you know that I have been using your
EASyL easel and I have been having a wonderful time
of painting, I have no more back problems from fiddling
around with my old french easel. Finally an ergonomically
sound easel is born!

wanted to let you know that I have recently begun to
use my new VERSA and the wonderful EASyL-Pak. I have
waited until now so that I could keep it in excellent
condition for my trip to Wilmington, NC, April 29 through
May 9. Both products are in every way superior. I have
been working on a 30" x 40" plein air painting
at Crystal Cove State Park. As you know I use three
Bungee Cords to secure my canvas to the VERSA. It works
very well. I am especially happy with the new EASyL-Pak.
Though I have not yet carried it a great distance or
subjected its parts to my traditional rough treatment,
the many compartments and ample space make it ideal.
I am enjoying them very much and thank you very much!
keep buying pochades and easels. I've tried most of
them. I even had a custom one built. After receiving
my EASyL, I've stopped my search. For my purposes this
is easy to use, light weight, and versatile. I have
even bought them for friends because I like them so

just received your Versa and the large wet panel box.
They are exceptionally well built and exceed my expectations.
Your designs are better than my own. You obviously have
experienced painters on your design team. I am recommending
your products to my students and fellow painters.
three weeks ago I purchased your setup and have been using
it with great pleasure. this weekend I participated in
an event sponsored by my gallery in new york and refereed
your company to 5 artists who also loved it. The simplicity
of the versa especially during the set-up process makes
getting started so easy and getting started when working
plein-air is most important The glass palette painted
grey is a great idea that I have never used and it has
been working out better than expected, so I just wanted
to thank you for making my painting process a heck of
a lot easier,all the best

Sir, first thank you for creating such and awesome product.
Craftmanship is great. Have a suggestion for you pastel
division and foam. The division work great. Is the foam
that is too thin. I bough a 1/2 inch foam instead cut
it to fit the divisions and then put the pastels. On top
I put the two foams you sent with the division. I close
the box and fits snuggly and no dust comes out.

students are appreciating the easels very much. Thank
you very much for sending me the package
of items I needed.
so thrilled with all my EasyL equipment! I can't say enough
about the way everything is designed to fit the specific
needs of the plein air painter. The backpack was worth
it's weight in gold and the wet panel carrier allowed
me to bring such a variety of sizes, well what a bargain,
flying with wet paintings has never been so easy. I just
took it as carry on and never worried about them being
lost. And thanks for the tip about crimping the hook onto
my brush cleaner. I added a little duct tape and never
lost a thing. I had so many questions about where I got
my supplies I'm sure you will be hearing from the other
artists. T. M. Nicholas was particularly impressed with
the wet panel carrier's versatility and price. Louise
Demore commented on how quickly I was able to set up and
break down and how convenient everything was. It made
it so easy to paint and move on and that made my trip
very productive, so thank you for the wonderful product
line. If your brushes are as good as everything else I'm
sorry I didn't stock up!
love the concept, the hardware, the whole system. Smartly
engineered and designed. Definitely a step up in versatility
from most pochade boxes. And the backpack is truly hi
tech. As an old backpacker in the mountains of Colorado
I can tell you that's one hell of a backpack you have!
wanted to tell you that I love your Versa box. I use for
oils and pastels. I made a light box for my pastels that
fits in the space. I take it in and out depending if I
am going to use oils.
returned from Hawaii where I conducted a plein-air workshop.
I'm sending photos with students and myself using the
easyl. They all enjoyed using the easyl so much, it was
very windy in some locations and the easyl was very sturdy
wanted you to know that I received my Easyl and I think
I am going to like it. The tripod is very impressive.
Makes my old one look like a toy. I can see why you encourage
buying it. The only thing I am concerned with is the foam
protection for my pastels. I¡¦m thinking
of getting a thicker foam and cutting it into pieces the
size of the compartments so I can place the foam lower
and better protect the pastels. I¡¦ll let
you know how that works. Thanks for the quick service.
am enclosing 2 photos- one of me standing in the middle
of the road and another of my finished work - that is
hanging at the Alla Prima Gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida.
I was one of 30 professional artists from Florida chosen
to compete in the "Paint the town" competition
in St Pete April 7 thu 9th.2005. I used your EasyL easel,
and loved the way it performed. It is very light to carry,
and the tripod is very professional and sturdy. We had
a breezy day, and being able to open the legs on the tripod
wide- the easel stayed very stable. i like being able
to adjust the easel level no matter what strange shape
thel egs are in. The 2 adjusting handles are great for
that. I am also glad that I can carry wet canvases on
the back if needed. Several artists and non-artists approached
me and asked
about the easel. I think it is small enough that I can
carry it in my suitcase when traveling by plane also.
I would suggest it to anyone. Thanks,
have spent quite a bit of painting time with the new Versa
setup by now, and I want to tell you that I am very happy
with it. The thing I like best is the balance - no tipping
whatsoever, even though I'm using the unit on a desktop.
The Versa feels very solid and stable. I especially like
the sturdiness of all the components. I'm impressed in
particular with the solidity of the side thumbscrews that
control the tilt of the easel back. That adjustment is
solid as can be, and simply won't slip. The Versa and
its accessories are very well made, well machined, and
a pleasure to use.
