First, Studio Products, a maker of high quality oil paints and specialty artist supplies, closes its doors. But their subsidiary, Realgesso.com, became independent. Realgesso makes truly excellent panels with glue-chalk gesso or oil primed linen grounds.
Alas, I just got an email from them announcing that the will also be closing down. I just hate that.
They are selling out their remaining stock, with discounts for large orders. Here is their link. Stock up while you can.
Update: Now gone. Oh, well.
