Ep 57 - Joseph Lorusso : The Value Of Romance

I had a lovely chat with artist Joseph Lorusso in Kansas. His warm, romantic paintings of people in everyday situations are expertly crafted and atmospheric. His ten years working in the greeting card company Hallmark have give him an impressive command of emotional evocation. He talked about his Italian heritage, the art business, watercolor painting, his own personal tips and tricks, the weather in Ireland, and a lot more . . .

Here is what we talk about:

  • Showing in group shows,
  • Italian origins,
  • Creative origins,
  • Representational art in the art market,
  • Artistic process,
  • Favorite tools,
  • Watercolor,
  • Drawing, value, color and edges,
  • Romance,
  • Wine,
  • Leaving space for the viewer,
  • Most moving picture to make,
  • Artistic challenges,
