I had a lively conversation with artist Maria Kreyn in New York. Maria paints soulful paintings in the style of the old masters, of modern people in timeless moments. She exhibits internationally, and her work is in collections throughout the United States and Europe.

We talk about the Salton Sea, lifting weights, detail mongering, the forest, and of course art, lots of art and painting . . .

Here are the main points of what we talk about:

  • Bombay Beach Biennale,
  • A typical day,
  • Origins of a painting,
  • Recording ideas,
  • Working with models,
  • Non-traditional substrates,
  • Sculpture,
  • 3D modeling and printing,
  • Painting technique,
  • Painting fast and loose,
  • Skin tones,
