Perfect Timing!

Ah, the Universe takes care of us.

On Monday I went up to Lee's Art Supply to get some Oleogel for Carey.  Much to my dismay, they are discontinuing Rublev oils.  Why?  I think they are going out of business.  It looks a bit sparse in there. That's really too bad, it is a cool store.

All the Rublev was 40% off so I got a few tubes.

I love Rublev.

Rublev is a small brand and there are two (2) shops where it can be found in person here in NYC (that I know of).  One is (was) Lee's, the other is alllll the way downtown by Canal Street and I don't like Canal Street.  I'll go if I need to but I don't like it.

And then I got THIS EMAIL:

Davinci Artist Supply
Rublev Artists' Oil Colors
Rublev Artists' Oil Colors

Da Vinci is conveniently located 15 minutes away from my office, and now they have Rublev!



  1. As one door closes, another opens - perfect timing!

  2. Lee's is going out of business? Crap.


Thanks for stopping by!
