  1. Just as a note- I’m one of the artists he talks about in the video, he goes over my painting ‘Murder of Crows’, but you guys don’t have me listed on the artists who are featured. I’d appreciate it if you added my name so I be given credit.

    • Hi Kathiucia! Of course – I’m happy to let you know that I’ve added your name to the list. Thank you for pointing this out, and well done!
