what type of paint brushes do you use ? I've wanted to take up painting
The right paintbrush is always the one that gets the job done. Most of my paintings are created with only 1-2 brushes. My favorites are my gesso brush, large filbert, blending brush, and varnishing brush. I buy all of these in multiples so I have backups to my backups.

What piece do you consider your most emotional? Is there one that you look back on and still feel what you did when you painted it?
That’s a tough one because most of them are extremely emotional and I can still feel each and every one of them. I would probably have to limit it to two though. The first would be Michael’s Note, the suicide note I painted for my father (he never left one). The second would be Impressions Of An Angel, the handprints of my best friend and muse, Deanne Hastings, who disappeared several years ago. It is suspected that she was murdered and the handprints are from the very last time she visited me. I discovered them many months later when I unrolled my 10 year floor canvas.
