Speed Painting While Weightless

Painter prepares for art in space, BBC

"On Tuesday morning, weather permitting, the painter will lead a team of five artists as they fly 23,000 feet into the air to create art inspired by the feeling of total weightlessness. Heavily influenced by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch Azam's work is primarily concerned with how bodies can be represented in different states of motion and tension."

Editor's note: I certainly hope this guy paints fast - with ony 20 seconds or so of weightlessness per parabola, he'll need to be very efficient with his time. He'll also have to stow his paint and brushes in that time before they start to pull 2 Gs. Could get messy.
