In case you missed it > During the daily Art School Live sessions, Eric Rhoads broke the usual format of a live demo to go into a deep dive with the world-famous CW Mundy. (Come learn from Mundy in person in May 2023 at the 10th Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo in Denver!)

“It’s taken me a lifetime to understand that the real value, the real work of getting the heck out of the way of our mind because it’s such a computer of information,” Mundy says. “The thing I’m trying to realize is that it’s more important to run with wisdom.”

In this interview, Mundy shares:

• The epiphany he has had over the years through studying art history (hint: the key word is “relation”)
• Thoughts on social media for artists and why he took an extended break from Facebook
• His own spiritual insights, and much more

About CW Mundy:
CW Mundy, an American Impressionist Artist, was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. He graduated with a Fine Art Degree and a Secondary Education Teaching Degree from Ball State University in Indiana and then worked on a Master of Fine Art at Long Beach State (CA). From an early age, Mundy demonstrated a propensity for drawing and athletics. In 1978, he combined his love for art and sports and worked as a sports illustrator for over a decade. In the early 1990’s, Mundy sought a different approach to painting and took on the challenge of painting in a more impressionistic style, going out of doors and painting “en plein air” and “from life.” This painting style led Mundy to a series of European plein air painting trips (1995-2009) and “plein air” trips to the east and west coasts and harbors of the U.S.A.
