Painter and sculptor Tori Tinsley joins Joe and Matthew for a broad discussion on the creative life. They start with a look at the process of putting a mural together, then move to the inspirations for her work.
She shares the experience of a studio flood and dealing with its aftermath, recalling a previous episode on studio fires.
Work habits are explored, along with donkeys as inspiration, side hugs, and Agnes Martin.
The therapy episode is referenced, yet again.
