Episode 10 - visit to the launch party at the Glenbow museum
What inspires you? Do you get off your computer and your phone and go to see live shows? Music, slam poetry, visual art?.. In this episode I take you with me to the launch party at the Glenbow Museum. I talk to a few guests and get their take on the work. I actually talked to more guests then my microphone properly recorded! Darn! Hate when that happens. It was a wonderful evening. We were entertained by the Torchettes - a band that I think is going to take the world by storm. On this podcast we were listening to DOUG WAITE!

Episode 8 Interview with Doug Williamson - painter inspired by Rembrandt
Doug finished a new body of portraiture work. He is a humble guy with a great passion and talent for painting. I caught him at his opening and had a conversation with him in front of his work. He provides us with lots of details on his techniques, philosophy and his approach at SLAYING the dragon of RESISTANCE. Doug's artist statement: With each passing year, I find myself traveling further into the past; giving myself over to the classical traditions and pathos of bygone eras. Seeming to always be struck in a different century, I have found wonderful refuge in kitsch - the enlightenment to see and be seen. Devoted to painting, I have taught myself various approaches of old and new masters to formulate my mark. I mostly work with still life compositions, but recently I'm being drawn towards the figurative. Please like, share and review! Thanks so much!

Episode 5 with Eddie Nyikes - an artist, rocker and gallery owner
Eddie is old school, but he is a little new school too. He finished his fine arts degree and he also worked over 10 years doing seismic. His work is very serene, but his home decor is not. Eddie is full of contrast and I think that is what makes this interview interesting. Check it out. Also the New Edward Gallery. Send me messages to firstname.lastname@example.org. Would love to know what you think of the podcast so far.
