I made this video with my sister’s family while we were camping. We used an iphone and ipad to film, edit, and WRITE the music for this little video. It’s amazing what is possible with these ‘phones’ (they are great for looking at cat videos too!)
I made this video while camping in the forest in Florida. my goal for the trip was to make a work of art, film the process, AND write a song to use as the background. This is a test run for a similar project…but collaborating with a group of artists. let me know if you are interested.
here is the finished painting. click it for a bigger look, and more information.
In honor of Martin Luther King Day, I want to share my latest print.
It is a portrait of Kentucky Legend, Eliza Harris.
In a race for freedom, Eliza jumped across floating pieces of ice to cross the Ohio River with her baby.
At the Ohio Shore, she was greeted by a man who was going to return her to slavery…but after watching her death defying river crossing, he helped her connect with the ‘underground railroad’ where she was relocated to Canada.
This print was hard to photograph, because the bottom layer is a gold-metallic ink. It really should be seen in person.
