#235 Todays Boondoggle – it’s the death of color with Artist and Army veteran Derrick Smith


In this episode Bill talks with army veteran and artist, Derrick Smith. We talk about growing up poor and in the trailer park and how Bob Ross and the Army was his way out of that life, learning diversity through military training, his challenge to not end up like his Dad, training to be an M.P., and therapy through oil painting and art. We also talk about claiming and manifesting our own power, the art of sarcasm, the death of color and humor, bringing people closure, why romance isn’t dead, displaying his art at Comic Cons, that walk of accomplishment through the airport, why the marshmallow people won’t survive the hard times ahead, plus so much more.
