More Episodes

In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with artist Eric Anfinson. We spoke about how the first time he picked up a paintbrush he hated the result but fell in love with the process.

It was this love of "doing" that had him coming back for more, eventually creating a fan base around the world.

I particularly LOVE this episode because it touches on how important the process is.  If all you care about is the outcome, you may be in for a life of sorrow, but when you love the process, you will have a life of true fulfillment. 

More on Eric Anfinson

Eric Anfinson's painting journey began in the fall of 2001 after he moved to a 2x4 mile island where the Gulf of Mexico & the Atlantic meet. 

Anfinson is part of a well-established creative collective in Key West, Florida . . . an island known affectionately by locals as 'the rock'.  The remote location & unique community continue to offer rich subject matter for Anfinson's work. 

The people that call this island home, & those who pass through, live on in the faces & figures in Anfinson's paintings.

A self-trained painter, Anfinson's work is in collections throughout North America & Europe. 

Anfinson, a native of Minnesota, paints full-time from his home-based Mockingbird Studio in Key West, Florida. 

Art is everything & sometimes simply an essence.
It is the tool that I use & that uses me in return. 
It is my best & most critical friend.
But these words mean nothing by themselves...
the work - the active process - is what matters most
.

- Eric
