Utrecht happens to have a store in Chicago and I am lucky enough to get there several times a year. Utrecht makes their own brand of paint and mediums. I use their acrylic supplies almost exclusively. They are very inexpencive and the quality is pretty darn good.

Artists Community sites.

The following are all great sites for either displaying your art or just to get information.

Point of interest: The larger ads here mean one of two possible things. Either the site participates in banner exchanges, (something you might want to look into for your own site,) or I just think this is a particularly dandy site. Well, actually I think all these sites are good or they wouldn't be here. Don't forget where to find this list of artists links. Bookmark this page.

If you are an artist and have your own gallery type site, post a link on the Artists Links Page. (A return link is required.)

Chinese Brush Paintings
Large selection of traditional Chinese paintings plus lots of related information - symbolic meanings of the themes in the paintings, taoism, feng shui and much more. The Gallery of China exhibition is one of the largest of its kind on the internet. A very beautiful, must-see website.


Reviewpainting Oil Paintings
Painting is the practice of applying pigment suspended in a carrier and a binding agent to a surface such as paper, canvas or a wall. This is done by a painter; this term is used especially if this is his or her profession.

LINK exchange rules.

At MY discretion, I may list sites here with no return link requested simply because I feel your site is a valuable resource.
But if you ask me for a link exchange, you must read this first.

noteThis is an ARTISTS and ART resources links exchange. Please don't even bother contacting me for a link exchange if your site has nothing to do with art, art supplies, art communities and so on.

If you are requesting a reciprocal link exchange, please note;
I have lost all patience with "reciprocal link exchanges" when my return link vanishes or becomes so badly buried I cannot find MY link even when I search specifically for it.
From now on, if my return link is more than two clicks into your site, I may deny your request. There is little point.
Zero tolerance for broken links. If that page ever comes up without my link on it, yours will be removed without notice!


1. Place MY link on your links page first. (It MUST be only a few clicks from your main page.)
2. Click my contact button and email me with the following.
3.Your site name
4.Your site description. (Spell check it, I will not.)
5.The EXACT URL my link is on. (And if mine is burried, THAT will be the page I link you to. Keep that in mind.
6.The url of your main page.
7. IF you have a graphic you want displayed on this page you may send me the EXACT url it's on. I don't require one in return but if you like, I have some banners here.
optional; you may request I download that graphic and upload it to my server or simply use your graphic url in the link. Unless you request otherwise, I'll use the url. (Easiest way for me to tell if your site goes down.)
In most cases I will have your return link up within 24 hours and it will stay up unless I do a random check on my return link and dont' find it.

Failor to read these rules FIRST will result in my not even replying to your email. Sorry but too many spammers send me bogus requests just to get my email address. Trust me, I can tell.
