“paint chips” with martha rich

PAINT CHIPS. Two artists eating chips while talking about paintings? Yep! My two passions coming together! And who better to have along for the very first episode of this new experiment than my good friend – who’s always up for pretty much anything – Philly based artist / illustrator / educator Martha Rich. Martha sent me some chips from Pennsylvania, UTZ Honey BBQ to be exact, we both picked a painter we wanted to talk about, and then we hit RECORD. It was weird, but fun… and isn’t that the whole point? You can listen right up there under that artsy paint chip, or subscribe on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify.

First up, Martha’s pick… Surrealist Leonor Fini {1907 – 1996}:

See? This is why I suggested popping over to here to see what we were talking about. Cats and ladies on shelves, a wrinkly beautiful portrait, and a scene that inspired quite a few questions from both of us. Speaking of a lot of questions, here’s my pick. American painter Amy Bennett:

Whaaaaat?! Yep! Look at the worlds Amy creates before she even starts painting. Crazy amazing. Clearly, I have to get her on the podcast to hear all the ins and outs of these possible crime scenes. Okay, most of them aren’t crime scenes… but I’ll still take the case!

Finally, a peek at Martha’s in-progress cut-outs, my clay cigarettes, and the super cute UTZ girl to wrap things up:

Awww, isn’t she cute?! So, there we have it. The very first PAINT CHIPS episode is “in the bag”. Get it? Yeah you do. Here’s to many, many, many more bags of chips {maybe some dip next time}, and a bunch of conversations about fabulous artists! Thanks so much to Martha for always saying yes to my weird suggestions, thanks to my hilarious husband Greg for not only coming up with this idea but also editing every single episode of ART FOR YOUR EAR {it’s so much work but he does it happily every week!}, and as always, thanks to YOU for listening! There will be a brand new episode next week. ~ Danielle

    I’m loving the premise of this, chips and talking about cool art. I’m also a big Utz fan, they sell a dark russet chip that is highly addictive: https://www.utzsnacks.com/products/utz-kettle-classics-potato-chips-dark-russets?variant=9015713529900
