A little while back I was contacted by the awesome folks over at Soul Pancake to do one of their Art Attack videos! It was such an amazing experience, and definitely a challenge to come up with a painting out of thin air in about four hours. It’s funny, inevitably there are things about this particular painting that I would have changed had I had time to step back from the process of painting it, but I sort of like having this time-capsule of what my initial thought-process is like. It’s certainly enlightening, and I think has helped me to fix some bad painting habits I had developed. Just goes to show you, sometimes you need to see your work through the prism of another medium, in this case, video!
The Soul Pancake crew were wonderful, and I want to give a shout-out to Jacob Menache, Ethan Coco, Gary Haroldson, and the director, Bayan Joonam - you guys ROCK! Also, many thanks to Anabella Casanova for contacting me about this opportunity.
I also did a short interview about what I do, my process, and my thoughts on art and adventure, which can be viewed here!
Has anyone ever used the “You know nothing” catchphrase on you? There was one situation a year ago. I was having lunch with a friend and the lovely waitress came over wanting to know what I was gonna have. And just in my own little world, I was like, “Oh, God! I don’t know!” The waitress was like, “You know nothing.” - Rose Leslie

I would rather wander around a store for 9 hours than ask an employee where something is and this I do not understand
