Art Clips ~ Video

This category includes a variety of pieces that I shot and edited myself -- using a professional camera and professional editing software. These videos promote the work of local artists as well as short pieces that showcase my art work in various mediums.

Note that all of the artists with videos on this page are part of the Orange County Artists Guild, which has its open studio tour the first two weekends of November. Hope to see you at the Thomson studio (number 70) and you see others around town.

Included in my art clips, are short "tone poems" about the natural surrounds in my woodland property and when I travel. Contact me to discuss how I can create simple stories like these for you and your artistic adventures, your family activities or your favorite environs.
