David, thanks for showing the interview clip. I was already a huge fan of your work, and now even more so. I especially enjoyed hearing about your early experiences as an American growing up in Germany, as my children have grown up here in Germany as well, and living here has been greatly influential to me with art personally. Cheers!

Thanks Rob, I'm not sure I really benefited as much I think that I could while we were over there, I was more into kinder eggs than museums. Plus we lived on an Air force base so everyone spoke english. Still the traveling was amazing, I remember that I won an easter egg hunt in Spain and got a huge tonka truck that we had to strap to the roof of or little green renault. Lots of great memories like that. :)

Excellent little video glimpse into your work, and history and direction. Wonderful explanation for using family as models. Ditto to that. Painting what you know so well (and love so much) is a wholly different way of spending snippets of time with them. Your mother's hands are coming along *so beautifully*. What a great piece.

Just love this video! Love the way you explain in simple terms eveything about your work and I love what you do and the way you do it. On thing you have done that has hit me is -painting on board-it might affect the way I paint forever! If it turns out a hit-I'll always remember where it all started-inspired by your video!
