Just wrapped a fun video shoot with Erin Ross of Blick Art Materials in Blue Ash, Ohio.  This was my first time into the youtube fray, and also my first time in Ohio! All I can say is thank you technofolk for the invention of the teleprompter and digital media.  My background in dramatic arts seems far, far off in the very, very distant past.  Stage work and video are quite different in approach and execution.  All in all, it was fun, if a little daunting.  Although I loved the stage, I'm not currently much one for being the focus of the camera.  I prefer to let the work, or in this case, the product, speak for itself.  I should also add that the team I worked with were so wonderful and patient with me! Thank you Erin, Ric, Phil and Libby!

There is, however, a case to be made for promotion of materials when they are new, or yet unknown, to out target market.  Tri-Art Liquid Acrylics and Mediums were the focus of these short videos, and as I passionately feel that they are indispensable materials for the acrylic and mixed media artist, and so despite my discomfort with the camera, it was my absolute honour to flaunt them.

Vids will be nipped and tucked and ready for viewing in a couple of months.  Stay tuned!
