Painting Experiment 1 – Video

Brushstroke, Video
The creative process has been a bit harrowing of late.  Do you know the feeling?
Many experiments have followed, and out of frustration I made a video piece that I starred in.  Some people do that when they’re frustrated, I guess?  That’s something you won’t catch me doing very often.  Yet here I am, painting into thin air from the inside out.

It was pretty fun to make.  I didn’t get too much paint on myself, and it helped me to learn what I don’t want to do, make works about me.  There, I said it.  Shall we move on then?
This painting onto plastic thing I have been playing with in recent weeks has been pretty fun.  Unfortunately, it also caused a bit of a distraction from the work I want to be making.  In many ways, I’m not much of a multi-tasker with ideas.  I can’t move my work in two disparate directions, they have to vaguely be going toward the same end.

The paint carnage afterward wasn’t actually that bad…
