New Liberace Video Clips

Hi Everyone,
I'm in Rob's anatomy workshop this weekend and learned that he put some clips from his upcoming video series on youtube. Here's the link. Enjoy.



I immediately noticed that the video on the second clip below is more a accurate depiction of his work than any of the still photography I've seen. You can see significantly more shimmer and variety in his color on the video than the still photos.

Simple Taboret for Painters


Painters - Here's my design for a simple taboret that can straddle your easel. It has just enough space for a palette, a few brushes and cup of terpenoid. Total cost - $11 each. You can buy tray tables for less ... but the reason I like these is that they line up neatly, stack well and double as a wall of shelves.

22"x11"x1" (top)
20"x11"x1" (shelf)
22"x8"x1" (brace)
30"x11"x1" (sides)
2"x4"x11"(optional 2x4's at base of sides for stability)

Screw the top, sides, shelf and brace. We're making a few of these for my studio because they stack.

The shelf should be 10 inches above the floor.
