“Willy Bo Richardson, The Impressionists, Regional Theater, Jack Ross”
New Mexico painter Willy Bo Richardson shares how discovering real world limitations allows him greater flexibility in the moment.
“What’s beautiful about painting is that it does everything that you want it to in that moment. So you have the materials, you have the artist and you have the action and they are all coming together instantaneously.”
