I see that John Dubrow has lauded a specialist in oil paint making who happens to be over the mountain in Charlottesville. ┬áJohn has a show opening today at Lori Bookstein and is a painter who loves paint and its generous application. I’m eager to meet this artist/craftsman Eric Silver and try his oils. The quest for the perfect paint never ends. I’ll report my findings after my visit. It’s reds I’m after and the perfect Ultramarine Blue, almost impossible to find without the purple cast of recent years.
