Live from Paris! The Art and Life of Beauford Delaney

I recently had the great pleasure of being interviewed by my friend Tim Paulson, marketing master, art lover, and artist, about Beauford.

I introduced Tim to Beauford's art in 2010 and told him that one of Beauford's self-portraits hangs at the Art Institute of Chicago. When Tim visited the museum and saw the painting, he was so captivated that he took several detailed photos of it and shared them with me for the blog:

Tim is a brilliantly inspired artist in his own right and he has begun to explore his love of art in a new way by creating the Art Lovers Podcast. Soon after launching the podcast, he contacted me to ask if I'd be willing to record a segment about Beauford. Of course I couldn't refuse!
