In the Artist's Words: CW Mundy
On June 12, 2012, Blanche McAlister Harris and I had a wonderful time interviewing CW Mundy. We covered a lot of topics in this 90 minute interview. Everything from how opportunities for travel present themselves(or do they?); to his experience taking Sherrie McGraw’s drawing class and what he thinks about Sherrie; to not just painting shapes but to incorporate form into those shapes; to being fearless when you paint; to his music pursuits! I could go on and on, but then this would be the longest foreword ever and you wouldn’t need the transcript!
