Valerie Brennan interviews painter Ted Gahl about his work and studio practice.

Gahl comments: "I do a lot of drawings on napkins at bars and restaurants, and I keep all of them. My larger works are usually derived from these small drawings, and the paintings are kind of a record of the images and ideas. The paintings become these tapestries of collaged drawing imagery."
