Artist Interview Series: Jason Bly

Hello True Art Believers!!!

Recently I had a conversation with Jason Bly a fine art painter based in Texas.  We talked via Live-stream on my weekly Artist Interview Series. Since the beginning of September I have been hosting live-stream conversations with artists across the country.  Jason is just one of many artist that I have had long format conversations with.  The funny thing is, Jason wasn't scheduled for that weeks artist interview.  I had been in talks with him a couple weeks prior to see what his availability was like for the next coming month. 

While I was scheduling him months in the future, I had a cancellation and I needed another artist.  Jason stepped up and volunteered.  I sure was happy that he did.  It was a very informative conversation. 

Jason is an expert in various painting techniques, so it was great to hear him impart some of his knowledge.  I was surprised to learn about the way he prepares his painting surface.  The techniques uses a razor blade to essentially spackle over any microscopic cracks on his wood surface.  Basically making what he paints on super smooth. Spackling with a razor blade and making gradients using a printmaking brayer were something I was unfamiliar with.  Maybe sometime in the future I might use those techniques for some of my work, but then again, perhaps I should leave that to Jason.
