Very excited to announce that I have been working with professional videographer, Maggie Dominguez, who's been taking live recordings of me painting on site in the Skagit Valley, over the past 2 weeks. We will be publishing the first of those videos in my May 2021, monthly newsletter, "Art in View" complete with audio, as I touch on what's going though my mind, hands and pastels, while I do of one of my plein air paintings from start-to-finish. The painting took over 2 hours, but Maggie is editing it down to under 3 minutes. There's more to it than meets the casual eye - weather, especially atmosphere in the Skagit Valley, light, mood, fleeting moments, interpretation and colors all play a huge role that affects the process and outcome of any painting!
Stay tuned and please subscribe to "Art in View". I always write something new and interesting about the art world (think future, present and past) together with images of new paintings, shows, competitions, plus brief stories about luminaries I've met along the way.
This monthly communique is also the best way to see my latest artwork before anyone else. Sign up for Art In View.
