This weekend. Learning this video tool. Here just seeing how natural morning light turns out (because I love the edge of darkness). What grainy means. Trying to connect small moments. And just showing for no reason other than so something is here. No snow forecast. But snow. The mountains rule.
That stray self on the muslin cloth, I have been calling it Life is Heavy. And today maybe I will call it Carry On, has a more positive sense to it.
Are those buds, or pussy willows that are dancing in the snow?
reminds me of some ancient creature doing what is necessary to “carry on”, perhaps building a fire, or the load is heavy
I love this creature
and this morning, what seemed like moon. it seems in it’s unfinished state, a basket.
Carry On -love it -demonstrates your unique pictorial artistry -your video is a welcome insight into your world.
pictorial, I am thinking about that
Just a lil slice of life, of home. 🙂 Soul-O looks healthy and happy, wondering around the house. That figure looks like a court jester to me…so, The Entertainer, The Balancer…The Reminder of Humor! I really like him. 🙂
yes, the humor
Your silent movie is so expressive; says much without words.
just being here
She reminds me of the Navajo people just emerging into the world, I think they were black and white striped
I don’t remember the stripe… interesting…
I have a friend in North Carolina who refers to dusk as “the edge of dark”——–I guess it’s a North Carolina expression. I’d never heard of it before, but I love it. It’s so evocative.
this is the first time I put those words together
Thanks for sending some snow, Jude. I loooovvveee snow so much and so I looovvveee bringing a visit to your site, for me it’s like going to a museum!
Enjoy the weather!
thank you for saying that
Your stray self is uplifting to my soul 💙
maybe that is what wandering is for.
I wish I could know what Solo is thinking.
he seems to know what I am thinking.
Love the petter-patter of Soul-o walking & the sound of snow falling.
sound is so interesting… when you focus in.
Looks good. It does take extra time but worth it especially after you get some practice and can do it without having to figure things out. I’ve used lumafusion for this type of thing. Whatever you are using looks great!
I have always used Sony Vegas. I just decided to upgrade it after 20 years, ha!
Quiet. Soft. Wintry. Love the silhouette of solo. I’m still thinking about that red line.
wintry has arrived. It is nice to think about it as a softness.
New year, new things 💙
new day even
Love your stray and just as Grace i was waiting for the jump.
wish i could animate, always wanted to learn that…
think the cinematographer in you is waiting to speak! i replay this clip over ‘n over, seeing it with different “i’s” each time. the “carry on” self captures child-like joy in the overlooked ‘n improbable. it sez, “seeeeeeeeeeeee?!!” ‘n “wheeeeeeeeee!!!” simultaneously. LOVE.
the time it takes though.
Such a peaceful video, Jude…the sound of hollow reeds…I find that sound is as important as sight today.
somehow, moments are peaceful.
WONDERfull. I expected to see Carry On jump off the cloth and
wait for it… oh ha.
I love how the body language of your stray self so completely captures the weight of the load. The full moon heart. The mountains rule. Wow. Thank you.
this has taken forever and then it is suddenly there.
mountains change everything. they create basket climates.
Skitch-skatchery has a hold on me. Rather powerful .
my scraps are getting small, takes a lot of energy to hold them together.
Reframing…we talk about that a lot at work, well along with “pivot.” Video is great…small moments, love them.
Context is so much. Sometimes just “turn around”.
Moments can be enough.
News: “Stray Self Lifts Moon Overhead – Fans Cheer”
A little Saturday humor.
Nice video editing. You’re good at that!
Ha! love the little story
I enjoy the video, it can a bit like illustration. The technology keeps changing, I guess it is good to keep learning.
Carry on and on and on…not in a positive mood today
I have begun to see moods as seasons… change comes.❤
Weather! whether or not. I love the video and the dancing spritely one!❤️
Weather is great, visible energy.
hey to you!
