More about Georgia Fullerton's GASP -- and the magic of fellow artists

Hi Everyone,

I hope this video loads on my old computer.  COVID -19 has shut a lot of
artists down.  We keep trying, and doing this and that, but the impetus
to paint is impacted by the facts -- most galleries being closed, no
meetings with other artists, no workshops in person, and the endless
sad stories connected to the virus.

On June 26 Georgia Fullerton held a Zoom event to introduce her
GASP method of painting people's emotions and histories.  She had
wonderful, inspiring guests.  And I don't know about the effect on
other artists, but it got me back into the studio in a pre-COVID-19
way.  I'm not saying the art I'm producing is great, but I feel super
painting.  The joy of doing it has come back to me.  I credit
Georgia.  Oh and of course my husband Steven who came into the
studio and said he liked the painting I was working on.  We need
that support.
