Reply Shrouded Hand February 21, 2013 great stuff, although I think he should have found that trajectory then kept it secret and taken it to his grave because they snubbed him Reply Jacob Okada February 24, 2013 ha!

Reply zainnemesis May 14, 2013 Pls watch the painting on my channel Reply Robin Borland December 21, 2014 I am a student at UF studying Art In Medicine. This documentary speaks to how art, in this case painting or visual art can heal from within. My area of study is how the brain reacts to the creative process. This is a perfect example. LOVE IT! Wish I could see the whole documentary. I have been fallowing this since kickstarter. Will there be a DVD or a place that I can purchase the film?? Reply Robin Borland December 21, 2014 Great! Thank you. Reply Lynn Kavanagh January 22, 2015 Can someone tell me the name of the piano sonata at 0:53? Reply Patricia Chandler February 15, 2015 Brilliant…..
