The closed Court Painter studio in Inglewood, Alberta
Court Painter fans were in a flutter Monday after most of the Court Painter outlets in Canada and St Pierre & Miquelon were forced to close because of a shortage of ideas.
A Hardon MacKay the studio Press Attache and apologist , blamed “teething problems” with the delay of the delivery of the new art algorithm generator crucial to feeding the Court Painter with fresh ideas.
The CP Studio first apologized for the problems on Saturday. In an update Monday, stated the Inglewood studio would open “when they damn well please,” but did not say when the rest might join them.
It said those studios that remained open were operating a limited menu of miniatures and sketches with shortened hours.
“We know that this might have inconvenienced some of you over the last few days, and disappointed you when you wanted your portrait fix — we’re sorta sorry about that….this disruption in our supply chain we take very seriously ,” Court Painter explained in a delicate yet strident statement.
