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.
