In this episode, Eric welcomes special guest Christine Swann. Christine has been designated as an Eminent Pastellist by the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS). In 2015 Southwest Artist Magazine selected Christine Swann as an “Artist To Watch” and her artwork has evolved since then. Although she originally started out by painting her children by bribing them with candy, she now works with live models.
