Saturday Short

After 40 years of being "the best house painter in town" (he lives in Florida), Murphy Elliott became an award-winning portrait artist. His work, in pencil and in oils, is known throughout the world. This documentary about Elliott, which I came upon by chance, allows the artist to tell the story of his own creative journey, which ultimately has taken him all the way to outer space. 

And if you're wondering, his oils cost in the mid- and upper-five figures.
