Well, painting is the one thing I do, that is just me. Its me and easels, and the pencils. And as long as I dont drool too much over the canvas, the colors come out pretty good. And its a chance to express all that Ive got inside, that I sometimes keep hidden. And I think thats why I paint big broad, wide open landscapes.
I was very inspired by Les Blanks film Burden of Dreams. I think whats unique about his film and the two Ive made is that theyre close examinations of filmmakers and how their own emotional experiences reflect in the material theyre rendering, and vice versa - how that material sometimes colors their own lives.
