winter solstice 

Happy Winter Solstice, here is to the Sun and longer days, looking forward to the sun baths in the studio as I journey onwards with my current body of work. It was an interesting year, as it winds down I reflect on a great year of art and travel, time spent with family, and new friends made. Gone is the old as I empty the backpack and lighten the load, and prepare myself for what the new year has in store. This year I learned to not fight destiny and to persevere in grace, and to ride the waves and be ready for a few sets on the head, yew!

minimotions in 3

Thought I would take a second and post some of my minimotions up for your viewing pleasure. These are a few of my one minute videos I put together spontaneously for Instagram, without overthinking things, and for the fun of it. I have been combining studio sesshin SLO mos and timelaspe footage with Nature footage. I work in the film industry from time to time, which takes me to stunning locations, which I usually gather timelapse footage for content, and I go to B.C. Interior and spend a lot of my time chasing around eagles and gathering timelapse and video footage there as well. Before my life as a painter I was passionate about film and have made sure to keep my passion up for the motion picture by making these minis, along with my experimental soundscapes. The advent of digital technology and innovation has made it possible to make a motion picture experience, however it is the content that makes the experience. It is quite amazing what one can do with very little, one iPad and my feet, hands and I suppose my eyes and ears…. anyway for now sit back and enjoy my little creations.
