Of late it seems my focus is on my painting and film. However, I do love the prairies in the winter. It’s as if a hush falls upon the city.
I was out visiting my home town of Elkhorn, and I was inspired to shoot some footage with my mom. We trekked out to a field in -40 degree weather, and shot some fantastic footage against the late afternoon sunshine. It was damn cold, and we were frozen, but the footage looks amazing.
After the shoot, I got my mom to recite some of her favourite winter poems, and I’ll be pairing the poetry with the footage we shot together. The end result will be contemplative and beautiful, an ode to the two things that have always been a source of inspiration; Winter and my mom. Here are a couple of screenshots.
