Painting is good for the Soul...

Here is a little video I created about my awesome creative experience in the studio yesterday!

I think it actually took me longer to create the video with Windows Movie Maker than it did to create the piece of art featured here !

But that's okay.

I learned a lot

and I am pretty proud of the whole damn thing !

Enjoy !

(Music by Neil Young - The Painter, from Prairie Wind, 2005)

Happy Wednesday !

Oh Kimmypoo! This is an amazing video and an incredibly inspired and inspiring painting! Amazing what a $2.99 canvas will evolve into. That one eye poking out speaks to me, in so many, many ways.

Great video! I love the way your painting told you what she wanted to be...and you listened! You inspired me so, I made a video using Windows Movie Maker for my son and his wife...a love story! Kim, you are such an inspiration...thanks for continuing to keep your blog so fresh!

What a great result! And I sooooo enjoyed seeing your step by step. Fearless is the key, isn't it? But so easy to say and so hard to do. You did great though!
Congratulations.

Marit said...

Wonderful, beautiful, gorgeous! I LOVE Neil Young and seeing your piece grow with his voice in the background make this a gorgeous video, AND a gorgeous result! Yes, you should be one happy artist girl today, I would feel the same!

Ok! I have been stuck on a painting since this summer. Your video/painting inspired me. Now I want to get painting immediately.

You're lucky you don't live close by, Queen. I'd be pounding on your door to give you a huge squeeze hug because you live life large. Awesome connection to your spirit, great video/song, and beautiful work with great title. I love to see how it transitioned from the original contemplative piece into one that speaks volumes. You rock! Get it? Get it? Rock girl ROCKS! Ok it's way too early (hee hee)
