On why he founded Green Wish:


    “After the birth of my daughter, I was struck by how strong and good I suddenly felt as a father. But I asked myself: What can I do and how can I contribute in any small way to leave the world a little better than when I found it, for Gracie?” – Raphael Sbarge, Huffington Post

    power of perception film with Chris and Jeff of the painting show

    in Spirituality

    The Painting Show is a radical talk show that uses animation and film
    clips to explore the minds of misunderstood celebrities.
    Creators Jeff and Chris have spent the last year working on a show
    that explores and challenges guests in a way like never seen before. They
    are two very different artists who met and found they shared a similar
     interest in the human mind and the many ways that we don't communicate what
    is going on inside of our heads. Mental health has become the great taboo
     only to be spoken about by professionals and only after a breakdown. The
     creators of The Painting Show believe that self-reflection and personal
    conversations within our day to day life is possible and when done correctly
    is an art form within itself. The Painting Show gives a platform for a guest
     to actively see themselves from the outside to see the possible forces
     working inside. Chris and Jeff operate within the show as guides within a
     dream absorbing information and showing it back to the guest
    >decontextualized and open for interpretation.
    The show which is in pre-production of the pilot episode has featured
     eighties child star Corey Feldman in a proof of concept draft and has Edwin
    Aguliar, sixteen year veteran of The Simpsons working on the show as
     animation director.
     The Painting Show is currently raising money on Kickstarter.

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 11 with Guest Johnathan Herzberg

    in Art

    Listen to this entertaing interview with host Michael Harris and up and coming young artist Johnathan Herzberg.  Johnahan works in an abstract nature.  He wants the audience to decide for themselves what they are seeing and feeling. When he’s creating, he rarely goes into a project with a plan, but lets it carry him through it and then suddenly its done. Generally this process creates a vividness of color and a mixing that allows for so many possibilities to pop out at the observer.


    “My relationship with art was something of a hit upside the head it happened so suddenly. I started painting about 3 years ago one day when I was home from college. On a whim, I got out the spray paint and the air compressor and "went to town" on some poster board. Since then have tried working with many different techniques using mainly trial and error methods to hone my skills.  I like the idea that a group of people can look at the same painting and all see and feel completely different things.”
