One of the quintessential tools for the visual artist is the easel. It is the structure that holds up the canvas while it morphs from stark and blank to refulgent with symbolism, meaning, technique, content, emotion, and — sometimes — healing. The light of inspiration floods the studio. The colors interact and “speak” to one another. Artwork becomes artplay.
