Carl Plansky, visionary paintmaker, founder of Williamsburg Oil Paints, and artist, died Saturday, October 10, 2009, from a heart attack. His good friend Richard Frumess of R F Handmade Paints offers a tribute to him on his blog.
I did not know Carl Plansky, but I've used his paints for years. I've always thought of them as paints made with artistry. His inspired contributions will live on in the works of countless artists.
