"Fort Worth Botanical Garden"

This one is another plein air I did at Fort Worth. Since my last post, many of you have commented and emailed. Your messages warm my heart. I really appreciate your support. I feel so lucky that I have so many friends "traveling" together with me. Thank you so much. Well today, I want to ask a piratical question to all my plein air painting friends. I am trying to find a sealed container to carry mineral spirit for my plein air trips. So far I have not found one that does not leak. What do you use to hold your turp or mineral spirit without leaking?

My father was a pharmacist. There are still a few old perscription bottles around the house. I found one that held cough syrup. It holds 4 ounces which, for me , is adequate for a session. It fits nicely in my little pochade box.

While painting, I use a double, lidded chrome container that fits on the palette.That will work as long as the rubber cap liner holds up....

Beautiful painting. I use oils you can clean with water. So, no help to you. :(
