In all my years as an artist I have used many mediums. I believe every medium really has its use. Like color pencils as mentioned, there are soft and hard leads, greasy or powdery etc. When I was young I discovered beautiful artwork can be created with cheap crayons or the most expensive oil paints. What I find more common is if you know what results you want you need to try different products and see what feels right for you. Everybody has a different eye, different hand movements and pressure etc. So one needs to be specific if asking for advice on products, perhaps with samples of work you'd like your style to resemble. Tools however I find different. I believe the right tools like good brushes are extremely important.

Hobby Lobby has discontinued all M. Graham products. This really is upsetting to me, because I have been favoring their paints. I know I can get them online but then we are dealing with shipping costs unless I spend over $100. What I have been doing is using the 40% coupon and buying one at a time at HB and it was saving me a ton of money. So I'm left with the decision to switch to Winsor Newton paint and save on the costs or bite the bullet and order online. Honestly I'm leaning to switching to NW.

That is a tough call Terry, it is hard when you get hooked on something and then they take it away. Is HL discontinuing the product or is it going out of production? If it is going out of production, you may only be able to access it online until it is all gone.

Grateful to Jesus for everything!

Hi Terry, there is an art store here in NJ that has prices that I could not find anywhere else. It is called Jerry's artist outlet and they have an online store as well. This is something others may want to look into as well. I would check their site and perhaps even contact them for assistance. I never came across any supplies yet that they didn't carry or get for me when necessary and still charge less then any other art store I used over the years. Good luck on your search. I know what it is like to see your favorite products disappear off the shelves.

No M.Graham is not going out of business, HL just isn't going to carry their brand any more.

Is Jerry's artist outlet the same as 'Jerry's Artarama' ? I've used them before and yes that is definitely where I'd get the M.Graham products if I were to order it online. I think their free shipping starts at $150 though.

I do believe their site uses the same name as the store. I would welcome anybody to share a place with better prices and selection. Brushes are my favorite buy there. Their prices are about a third of what I have paid at every other small store or chain. Worth looking into I'd say. Funny thing minimum orders as it applies to shipping charges, one because they are so cheap you save a lot and don't need to spend a lot to get what you want and 2, you can easily buy hundreds of dollars of supplies when the prices are so good it's easy to hit the numbers you may need and stock up.
