Jessica Watson by Amy Crehore 2013, oil on linen, 8" x 10"
I created this portrait of the amazing Jessica Watson for Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield's blog dedicated to their brand new book The Art of Doing: How Superachievers Do What They Do and How They Do It So Well. There are many wonderful interviews in this book, including one with friend Mark Frauenfelder of Boing Boing .
At the age of 16, Jessica Watson became the youngest person to sail solo around the world.
The interview with her in the book is quite fascinating.
The authors share some of it today on their blog, have a look:
You can buy the book on amazon here.
