    Wow! This is a treat! Jeff your questions and comments about Pierre’s work brought great depth to the whole interview. I am already a fan of Pierre’s work and even more so now.
    The powerful “Didn’t Mean to Hurt” carries a similar emotional weight as Picasso’s “Poor People on the Seashore” and “La Vie”. I can feel it in my heart. Great interview!

    Another great interview Jeff.
    I look forward to these insightful pieces and the sensitive Pierre is a great choice. He is so generous of spirit and although I have only known him for few months, I have found him to be a truly wonderful human being 🙂
    Your work and time on these interviews is greatly appreciated, I just hope it’s not interfering with your painting time 😉

    Thanks for your profile of Pierre Raby. I first connected with him through his stunning graphite portraits. Looking further into his blog I realized the great breadth of his skills. His narrative compositions (drawing and paintings) satisfy the viewer on many levels. His emotional connections, which come through in his images depicting personal moments, make the viewer feel connected, too. Like you, Jeff, I also check Pierre’s blog on a regular basis, hoping for that next entry. Jeff, thanks for a great interview. Pierre, more please.

    Jeff, this is FASCINATING. Thank you. I’m loving following what you’re up to, and man, you just keep setting the bar higher and higher! But I like this feature of interviewing a featured artist, too. Very cool.

    Hi Joanne; I agree – I think the emotional weight can be compared to a lot of pieces we all think of as great art.

    Hi Paul; it’s my pleasure. A long time ago in a different life I was a music student (composition). One of my teachers told me that for him, trying to write well about music was an important part of being a composer. For some reason that stuck with me, so I keep trying to write well about art, and view the effort as an important part of painting.

    In my own mind, anyway…
