So you weren’t able to make it to the “Human Paintbrush” Premiere event? The short film was about Don Matis, resident of Hudson OH, who paints with his beard! You missed a ton of fun! Don Matis Jr, the star, Mika Johnson, the film maker, co-producer and director, along with Jeff Pence, co-producer, were on hand for questions and answers at the event. The discussions revolved around building community, what inspires Don to paint, asking Jesus to help him before each painting, and what’s in store for the future of “The Amerikans” next series.
“Human Paintbrush” is episode 10 of “The Amerikans”, a series of relationship-based documentaries created in close cooperation with their participating subjects. This episode of Don Matis represents Don’s authenticity of character, deep-rooted views on human nature and happiness, and sharing what it means to be a true Catholic Christian. Previously released episodes of “The Amerikans” were also shown.
Don also had an exhibition of his artwork on hand, May 18th. You can see some of his artwork for sale here in our store. Here’s the short film for your enjoyment.
Here’s the explanation of “Real Presence” painting in beginning of film. Please take a look at our store to see some of Don’s creations painted with his beard.
