      I thoroughly enjoyed being able to share the thoughts and feelings of Eric Fischl. Being an artist can be a trying process, with all that goes on inside and outside the art world. He takes you on a journey of the changes in his world and the art world. The complexities of being an artist. Simply wonderful.
