Joseph Paquet - Interview, Book & Workshop

Minnesota painter Joe Paquet was interviewed earlier this year by Phil Bolsta, and the video has been posted. In it, Paquet talks about authenticity, exterior and interior motivation, Rainer Maria Rilke, and finding and expressing what is important to you.

His site also has a link to Mitchell Albala's new book, Landscape Painting: Essential Concepts and Techniques for Plein Air and Studio Practice , which features several of Paquet's paintings.

Last but not least, Paquet is offering a five-day workshop next month (January 18-22) on Santa Catalina Island, an hour by ferry southwest of Los Angeles, California. The painting above is one of several plein air "Catalina Postcards" (8"x12") from last January.
