Artist Interview: Sabine Tress

The rush, the hassle, the anxiety, the battle, the surprise, are all things that drive Germany based Artist Sabine Tress. "Now, I really know this is who I am, and this is what I want to do for the rest of my life." Join ahtcast in this conversation where the subject is on the perils and high points of painting. Also a special episode where Sabine Tress turns and asks me the very same questions I posed to her. Should be a really enjoyable "double-interview." Listen in below!

  4. I like Ice Rain and Get to France. I guess I can identify fairly easily with the two themes in those paintings. I also like the way that the artist explored the idea of Ice Rain. The lines and color make me think of cold.
