- Before you buy your easel, carry it around the store for a few minutes to really see how heavy it is
- Wear an apron to use as a rag because your free hand is holding the palette.
- Watch where you set up - what is behind you is as important as the view. My easel was at the edge of a wooden trail and I couldn't step back of the drop and the poison ivy. I could have easily initially positioned my easel to avoid this problem.
- And the most important warning - do not have a super sized coffee before you go.

Hardly anyone was at the park. A few people walked by us. No one said a word.
Not one word.
