A Few Short Video Experiments

Just what the title says. One, playing with stop motion apps on my iPhone and a small art mannequin.

This one, is a collaboration with my eight-year-old daughter. She read me an entry in her dream journal and then we illustrated it together and animated it.

Lastly, my daughter telling a puppet story at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center and bits of a hike included in the middle of the story.

Pomme de Terre Lake - Oct. 2016

This'll be largely photo-heavy, since I think the video I made above does a better job of explaining things than my writing will.

I will say this, we saw a lot of wildlife on this little two-day weekend trip — a handful of deer, bald eagles (harassing these guys >), blue herons, white pelicans, great egrets, kingfishers, gulls, woodpeckers of various make and size, indigo buntings, hawks, ospreys, stick bugs, the biggest murder of crows I've ever seen and a fox in camp at dinner Saturday night.

The view from Lost Hill Island, that point in the background, we were standing on the previous day during our short hike on Indian Point Trail.

Eagles messing with a blue heron, I'm guessing he had a fish they wanted.

Brian caught the biggest fish.

Watercolor Donuts

I have started a series of donut sketches in watercolor. Planning on painting a baker's dozen. Here are the first four.
