Ep 76 - Pamela Wilson : Heartfelt Rule-Breaking

I had a great chat with Pamela Wilson in California. Pamela paints evocative, narrative, figurative paintings, technically brilliant and packed with atmosphere and questions. She has had numerous solo exhibitions and her work is collected widely. She was recently named one of the top 100 oil painters working today.

We talked about lucid dreaming, bossy toes, horoscopes, antiques, and lots of art and painting . . .

Here are the main points of what we talk about:

  • International exhibitions,
  • Photo reference,
  • Painting coach,
  • Making marks,
  • What makes a good painting,
  • Honesty in work,
  • Collage,
  • Confidence,
  • Failure,
  • Antiques,
  • Underpainting,
  • Gold leaf,
  • Synesthesia,
  • Tarot,
  • Healing the past,
  • Steampunk,
  • ”Daily pleasure reading,”
  • Exercise,
  • Teaching,
  • Social media,
  • Art business,
