Judges Were Confused By His Painting... Until He Makes One Final Adjustment
When Anderson Cooper opened the stage for his viewers to show him their talents, D. Westry knew he had to give it a shot. He is a speed painter, meaning that he combines the art of painting with a performance element. The painting process, usually done in private by most artists, is meant to be viewed in this case. Adding a time restriction provides elements of thrill and drama to these works of art. D. Westry tells Anderson Cooper and the panel of judges that he will complete an entire painting in a minute and a half. As he paints, the judges are skeptical and unsure of what they are looking at. It almost looks like a disappointment for D. Westry - but, at the last minute, he makes one final change... and blows them away.
