Tracy & Deano Video Art 1

An area of art that I want to develop skills in, is that of video art. I have absolutely no training in video as an art medium. That said, I did have a childhood in which I spent a lot of my time at film studios; for my father was in the movie industry. So,…

Winter’s Magical Eve

A poem by Deano Parsons. Winter’s Magical Eve.Villages lit by twinkling lightsThe chill wind shocks with frosty bitesWindow displays of gifts and treesWhile garden ponds begin to freeze.

BEFORE

Let my eyes see my thoughts and bring my heart alive. Let my hands be able and bring it from my mind. Let my soul blend these words and create reflective prose. Let me plant the seeds of thought and watch the creation grow. Let me free to create what I hold dear to my…

The case for Selfies

(By Margaret S. Morton) As a mother I am constantly behind the camera catching all the precious moments of my children’s lives.  There is nothing I won’t capture. The external backup drives have started to fill a drawer. And now with online backup like google photos I can keep them safe. I could probably write a…

A Little Glam

Tracy has put together a mix of some old Hollywood musicals imagery, with some of her favourite music. This was, no doubt, a time-consuming process but, as you will see from the wonderful video below, it was very clearly a labour of love. Thank you, Tracy! It is a STUNNING video. Please do take a…
