Enter to Win: Premium Quality
set of Blockx Oil Paints!
The last day of the NAMTA Art Material trade show in Denver a gentlemen comes over to me and says we have something in common. My mind goes into overdrive. Women? Money? Bad Business Deal... He tells me how he had quit his job at Unilever in Europe and purchased the Blockx business. My expression reveals nothing - because I haven't a clue what he is talking about. He says that he purchased this art material business, much like I did with Nitram, to bring back an excellent product that had been well respected and used by many artists including Salvador Dali.
He hands me a beautiful wooden box of Blockx oil paints. He asks me if I could do something with it to inform artists that Blockx is back.
So I decided to hold this contest and give it away.
Good luck and I hope you win.
PS - While in Denver I go to The Tattered Cover bookstore. Great place. While browsing the art section I come across a lovely book of paintings by Edward Hopper. So, back in Canada, I am reading it and admiring his work AND THERE IT IS! Edward Hopper mentions Blockx oil paint in his ledger! Wow! Life is just full of strange coincidences.
