Needing some help

lovemymiataAugust 16, 2007

Hi Everyone,

I am needing some help with a situation. In my hometown of Paragould Arkansas, we have a man that is a painter by choice. He paints the majority of the store fronts at Christmas time and paints signs for anyone that needs them. Our town has loved ones who is serving in Iraq , so he has been painting vehicle windows, and back door glasses of vans with the soldiers names and the company they are with. The local newspaper has featured him twice in the paper with a very nice article each time. He does not charge for his services if they have a loved one ( immediate family ) that is serving our country. If they have a cousin, neice, nephew, aunt, uncle..etc.. that is serving, he only ask them for a donation of whatever they would like to give. He paints on a average of 10 vehicles per day.

The last article the newspaper featured said that he does not know how much longer he will be able to provide his services, due to the lack of paint brushes. He is down to his last one. The kind he uses is Red Sable watercolor brushes in sizes 6,7, 8 10 and 3/8 & 1/2 inch. These are the best kind, they will outlast the other brushes much longer and provide a better service.

I am not asking for any kind of handout, or donation. I am only asking for someone to send me to a wholesaler or know of someone that I can purchase these for him in maybe a bulk lot. So that he may continue to offer his services, and see the smiles on the faces of the families and person he is honoring.

If you know of anyone who sells the Red Sable brushes, or you can get them , please let me know. I would be glad to pay for them + any shipping charges , as I know they would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Annielu,
I checked out pat Catans and didnt see any red sable brushes. They have alot of neat items on there web site that I need to go back and look thru.

The best website I found was for Jerryartarama. They carry the Red Sable brushes and are on sale right now, until the 20th.

I ordered several and they look to be good brushes. If you would like to send some I know he would appreciate them, and I really appreciate you helping me out.

Please email me at : and I will send you my mailing address , we both appreciate all the help you given us..

I asked some people on another forum and so far I got this one.
Try this website:
I have friends who order their art supplies from there. Cheap Joes is based in Boone, NC. Also, Hobby Lobby frequently has all their brushes 50% off.
