I was inspired to take a long view of what I have been up to by snatching up some four or five hundred or so images taken from all the blogging I've done (there's a speedy little tool for that) and you know how I love my eye candy.
Then I pared that batch down to just under 300 images that showed finished or nearly finished pieces.
Then I made three folders on the desk top. "What Was I Thinking" (read with a sneer) , "Don't Care One Way or the Other", and "I Would Hang That on My Wall" . Taking some more time to learn a movie making tool that came with my new laptop was good for a few hours aggravation, so here are the ones that made the cut.
I made the movie complete with music by Neil Young , the song timed by Windows Moviemaker to match the images ( or was it the other way around?)
...and yes, Neil, I liked it so much I paid for it. Alas, YouTube has decided that paying for it wasn't enough and the music has been stripped away (but you can see and hear it here if you want but be warned, it's huge)
As for this whole process being an exercise in self discovery...that remains to be seen. It turns out that these images are in fairly accurate chronological order and that's been a revelation of sorts. If you want to comment and Blogger gives you any kind of trouble, email me...and thanks!
