From abstracts to rendered "mermen", John Smiddy's paintings are infused with a contemplative quality, whether they're nightmarish or whimsical, or both at the same time. Gina and Peter discuss his fascinating journey through a disparate resumé of careers, fortuitous meetings, and how music lies behind everything. We spoke to John in his brightly lit, high-ceiling painting studio in West Oakland, California.
