Ep 41 - Gregory Mortenson - Part 2 : From Haiti To Gethsemane


This is part two of my chat with Gregory Mortensen.  Greg spent 12 years studying painting. It shows. His work has been on the cover of American art Collector magazine a couple of times. He has been in numerous group and solo shows. He has just finished his latest one man show at the Arcadia gallery in New York called – Zion’s Children – which is of children in an orphanage in Haiti that he has been involved with since 2010.

Here is what we talk about in this part:

  • Portrait painting
  • Self portraits,
  • If the old masters had Instagram accounts,
  • Alla prima painting,
  • The benefits of teaching painting,
  • The business of art,
  • Shared studio space,
  • Joshua LaRock and Michael Klein,
  • The most moving painting Greg has made,
  • Creative challenges.
