Russell Edwards Q&A Pt 5
Name three artists you’d like to be compared to.
Couldn’t be so presumptuous sorry.
Favourite or most inspirational place?
Venice – totally unique place – and standing in front of the “Birth of Venus’ by Botticelli in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Keep a good sharp point on your pencil!
Professionally, what’s your goal?
Simply to paint for as long as I can and for as many people as possible to see my work. It would be nice to sell more work but not for the cash, but for the satisfaction of knowing that someone has liked what you’ve done and that they are looking at it hanging on their wall. That’s what it’s all about for me.
What wouldn’t you do without?
Chris, my wife and no, she didn’t tell me to say that!
