These are my beginning forays into video. I just found out my digital can take movies. They are a little primitive but you can get an idea of the flow of the space at Fire and Water ART! The last two feature our fearless leader and her wonderful paintings, working on some of the mundane details of being an artist. I'll have to video her painting process sometime!
