I am delighted to have been mentioned on radio NPR’s The State of Things, hosted by Frank Stasio, Tuesday, August 4th. James Keul, the curator of Golden Belt’s Reawakening Exhibit and fellow artist of Golden Belt Artists Group, spoke about how artists were motivated to paint during the pandemic. He talked about my painting on paint-in zoom calls, painting models virtually, and needing to think outside the box. Also how I tried subjects conceptually, based on current events over these past months.
Online workshop – Available anytime
