Studio Clips: a First Attempt at Video Making

I was on Instagram one day and saw a lovely video of  Kate Hudson playing in the snow.  It looked like an old reel-to-reel movie and it had music.  For some reason it set my creative mind on fire and I just had to figure out how to make such an old-looking video.  After some hunting, I found an app called 8 mm for the iPhone, and boy has it been fun.  

 I know many of us love seeing videos of artists doing their thing and in their spaces, so 
I thought I would start making short videos of life in my art studio to share with you once in a while. It has provided another creative outlet for me and another way to sort of shake things up.  If you know me, you know how I like change.  That's why I switch from oil, to acrylic, to mixed media from painting to painting just about.  Keeps me from getting bored.  My mother used to tell me when I was young, "bored is your middle name," and I think she was right.  

I am also working on another idea for the use of this app,  but I will share more about that later.

Hope you like it!  It's just over a minute long.
