Full Expression

Release Date: 05/17/2021

Adam Wolpert is a painter of the naturalist landscape tradition. He is also a co-founder of the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center in Sonoma County, California, an intentional community and thought leading nonprofit education center. A lifelong visual artist, for the past three years Adam has been engaged in a project of painting large intimate portraits of trees he calls, The Great Oaks.
I spoke with Adam about his focus on why he values his creative practice more than finished products, the discipline and patience that the craft of painting requires, how drawing and painting can positively affect your mindset and memory, and the importance of doing what you love, showing up every day, and having faith.
