Title: Artist's easel attachable to a door

Abstract: A space saving, door-mountable artist's easel with a framework adapted to receive and hold an artist's canvas, art panel, clipboard, or some other item that would normally be affixed to an easel with a mounting bracket attached to the frame so the entire device may be hung on a door. The easel can be used while mounted to the door it is stored on. In one example, a front pivoting frame enables the mounted piece to be extended outward from a back stationary frame. A height adjustment mechanism allows the mounted piece to be raised or lowered to a desired position, enabling the artist to stand or sit. The compactness of the easel enables an art piece being worked on to be left mounted to the easel for drying or viewing, and the door can still be opened and closed normally with the easel mounted to it.
