I name my art after song titles because music is also art. Because music fills my soul with happiness or sorrow or excitement or fear. Because art that has a song title sends people to another place in time where they might have fallen in love or had their heart broken or experienced the birth of a child or a memorable cross country trip or a high school crush. Because you can dance to music and because there is so much life in dancing (not to mention that I’m blaring the music and generally dancing my butt off as I create.. go ahead, picture that 🙂 )
I thought fusing these two mediums would allow me to create with both the methods and products that I love so much. I was so pleasantly surprised at the outcome of the marriage of these two.
I spent most of the day today by “eating the frog” (doing the stuff you don’t want to do first) and trying to get caught up in adding the recent art I have created to my website.
Anyway, as for this post, I thought I’d tell you about my attempt at a video tutorial on Tuesday. The video was pretty OK as far as a rookie video goes, but my focus was absent and therein lies the rub. In the future, I’ll try to just create and not narrate or add audio later but this was multitasking that is not in my repertoire. You’ll likely get some good info out of it, but the finished piece will definitely need some tweaking on my end to get the results I’m happy with.
I’m sharing a little about moi today. So really all this is going to be is a bulleted list of some interesting or not so interesting facts about this particular artist, who totally calls herself The Human Unicorn.
Yes, I’m doing this. I’m starting a blog. Hopefully, this won’t be the only post you see in a while. I’ll try to be diligent. I’m going to make it a requirement… Whether it’s daily or weekly is yet to be determined but I think it’s good. I’ll write a little in the morning and art all afternoon.
