In The Studio

I got to interview Chris in February for a short film our mutual friend Dustin was making, and it really got me thinking about what it means to be gutsy in your own work, and about how much I need and want to harness the power of that in my own creative journey.  (I'm working on it.)

In the months since then Chris and Dustin continued to work on the piece and it's ready to view!  Looking at it now I have to say that I just love hearing Chris talk about the interplay of his passions and how they feed and inform each other, making each element stronger.  I was on the edge of my seat during the original interview hearing him talk about his process and it's fascinating to watch again.  

And finally, this piece is just stunningly beautiful - both Chris' paintings and Dustin's shooting.  Blow it up to full screen, and enjoy.

Wow.
Hearing Chris tell about leaving his post at the construction site and sitting down to cry in the knowledge that he is an artist...well it turned on my tears, too...as did the full-out beauty of this piece.
Conveys so much, as does Chris' work, of how life's simple elegant truths can bubble up into physical, comforting, inspiring form.
