A must listen!

A wonderful podcast that delves into painting, the process and the various artists goals and processes. Lighthearted and comprehensive in his interviews, Carl is a joy to listen to and his remarks and follow up questions are spot on!

How Not To Sail ,

Very well done!

Love it! I looked around and decided to check out the Matt Ryder episode first, based on the description, and really enjoyed it during my neighborhood walk. (3 walks, since I was doing the bare minimum of exercise just now.)

You had me from the first music bump. I don't know a plein air from an airplane, but you brought me into the painting world, and even the details didn't feel too into-the-weeds. Looking forward to checking out more episodes on my trip back to ATL. Keep up the great work!
