Digital Painting inspired by a tree flowering at the Audubon Reserve near Sharon, MA.
This is a unique piece of filming, animation and science coming together. Tried to envision how events may have occurred to have encased live beings and preserve them for eternity. The world has been around for billions of years and many species have preceded human beings, so this example is a testimony that what comes goes and the circularity of life.

An essay of imagined interactions – fluids, flowers, minerals, crystals, gems and space.
Let your eyes be the windows and your imagination play.
In this piece I’ve used dried flowers and minerals to establish a link between organic and inorganic states. Also, through the use of colored fluids built a nexus to the imagery by connecting space and earthly elements. This is one of a series I’m beginning to develop in this genre.
Enjoy the views,
Filmed in Ohio and Massachusetts over the month of October. Digital paintings and time lapses used to create a multimedia effect and enhance the character of the outstanding colors of this season.
Hope you enjoy the imagery,
After much work over months of planting, nursing, weeding and pruning the final stage is filmed. Wishing to preserve the beauty of the surrounding flowers, I filmed and painted them (plus a couple of digital experiments towards the end of the video.)
Showing the following plants: spirea shirobana, smoke tree, fringetree, petunia, Stella de Oro Daylily, Astilbe simplicifolia, colored Coneflowers, various types of roses and others.
Enjoy the show,
Among the many scenes you will recognize Lilies, Irises, Hydrangea, Purple Cone-flowers, Lavender Wisteria, Smoke Tree and other specimens of colorful trees. Towards the end, the filming had to be cut short due to impending lightning and heavy rain. All along I was carrying a large (golf) umbrella to protect the cameras and myself of heavy raindrops that were beginning to hit us.
Shots taken around our garden while a storm was fast approaching. Some sequences were hand-held, others taken on the run 🙂 ♥
The power of mother nature was evident!
Enjoy the show,
