Added two new works to fineartamerica today. Also voted in a couple of the online art exhibitions called Contests on this site, added another artist to the Favorites tab and added one to my Watch tab. Created a new Gallery folder called Hybrid Art, differentiating those works from the digital art based on photography, and the pure unaltered paintings & drawings. I use the Gallery Tab to sort the works I've uploaded to fineartamerica in various ways. Some folders have to do with subject matter of the art such as figures, flowers, etc. Other folders have to do with when the works were created, a time line by decades. Then I also have some folders showing the price range of the originals, even though originals must be purchased directly from the artist. A few folders also show which works were included in recent exhibitions.
I continue to work on the film CHRISTMAS RIDE, trying to get all the multitude of film clips edited. I'm learning that in movie theaters there are three major types of projection systems: one for movies recorded on actual FILM, older electronic projection systems, which project a variety of digital formated films, and newer systems called Digital Cinema Packages which project very High Definition motion images. Today this breakdown seems to parallel the type of art we create now: Actual PAINTINGS, digital art photography based, and the High Definition images of art we upload for printing, often combining the other two forms. Am looking for theaters to show the feature film, CHRISTMAS RIDE, when it is completed this year. I'm happy to announce the screenplay was selected as a semi finalist so far in the Charleston International Film Festival in the scriptwriting competition.
In the meantime, other short videos I've made may be seen on youtube.com channel blessings427. Anyone with art videos may add their own video to the Painting Demonstration Playlist I started there. There are many excellent examples of portrait painting there.
