Where I buy material

I started to use a local art store but then found that my limited budget was being exceeded.  I then discovered that I could get everything I needed from Blick Art supplies at a significantly lower price.  Their online ordering system is straightforward.  The packages are very well wrapped  (including canvases, oil paints, charcoal pencils, palettes, etc).  I also appreciate that I can recycle all their wrapping material.  The shipments arrived within the expected timeframe.
