Visions revisited…

Last year at this time,
I was polishing up the tiara,
and mirror ball,
for the opening of …

Since then, the dynamic creative production duo of David and Barbarella Fokos,
aka Salt and Sugar Productions
have been dividing their time between studio work, filming and editing of new productions for TAO, The Artist’s Odyssey (check out their updated website),
oh…AND enjoying awards ceremonies at International Film Festivals.

Indeed, news that Visions of Home
was an official selection of NOVA Fest — the Northern Virginia International Film & Music Festival (http://www.novafilmfest.com), came across the airwaves back in March.

Then comes news this week, that TWO of their films will be included in the
Oceanside International Film Festival 2017, next month !!!

Yep, that’s me at the easel again…still painting that blue door !

So, as I am in final production for my next show, at the Granary Gallery in only a couple weeks, I have been given the opportunity to provide my readers and viewers with a special chance to see the movie, Visions of Home, in all it’s seaside glory, here from my website.

For anyone who might have missed it the first go round,
or who may be new to this site because they saw it at some film festival without knowing beforehand who that old woman with the paint all over her shirt was,
and for the rest of you who just simply cannot get enough of watching paint dry,
and do not let me overlook Finnegan’s fan base…

Anyway, David has made a lovely page dedicated to the movie where you can see the trailer and watch the full film and get some backstory, with the wonderful blog post that Barbarella wrote about last years’ debut screening and some of the process behind their process, which alone is worth the read…and he’s included the article which The Vineyard Gazette published around the time of the opening in which they interviewed Barb and David about the making of the film.

So grab a bowl of popcorn,
pull up your lawn chair by the kiddie pool,
put a straw in some cool beverage,
set your favorite viewing device to this link…

Visions of Home

and Herself and I will welcome you into our lives…
and our hearts.

 


Now… available on a screen near you…

The movie is HERE…

Oh what a night it was. The house was packed, as they say, with eager friendly faces who came for the premiere and to support all of us who were captured by the magic of David and Barbarella’s brilliance.

movie night

Herself and I were blown away. They did such an amazing job.
Our fifteen minutes of fame stretched a bit further, on into the weekend, where we had a super opening at the Granary Gallery.

There is much more to write and share, but along with the swollen ego that filled the car on the way home…I picked up some swollen glands…and the muses have sat me down firmly in order to heal this viral plague so I can get back to those brushes and fill up some of the empty wall spaces !

So, I’m going to sip on my chicken soup and dream back on all the glamor and love surrounding the week on MV.

Meanwhile….it’s your turn.

All you who were unable to make the premiere, and all of those who left the theater wanting to watch it all over again, and again…you can now just click on the link above and be magically transported to The Artist Odyssey website…grab a bowl of popcorn, and watch this movie on the screen of your choosing.

All manner of good things, and summer love, to you all…

Visions of Home

Hello…it’s me,

because we have a movie premiere to attend…

film poster

Tonight I painted the last brushstroke on the last painting for this summer’s Granary Gallery Show. And while I have been working hard here in my studio, all the way across the country, the famed infamous artists/film production team of David and Barbarella Fokos have been in their San Diego studio creating a documentary about my artwork.

You can view David’s spectacular photographs on his site, click hereand explore Barbarella’s world of wonders on her site, click here.

I’ve been teasing you here along the way, and now they have created a teaser of their own, a trailer for the upcoming movie, Visions of Home.

Pat and I have been singing the background music all week.

And hang on to your chiffon and your boas everybody, there is going to be an actual PREMIERE. Yes. The MV Film Society has information on their site, click here.

It will be at the Capawok Theater, in Vineyard HavenFriday July 29th
6PM

The tickets will be free but they tell me anyone interested in coming will need to check in with the theater to reserve seats. After the film there will be a Q and A with, the artiste, the film makers, and the director of TAO, The Artist Odyssey, Chris Fessenden.

Please take an extra minute to visit their website, where you can view some of the other artist profiles that David and Barb have done. Wonderful.

Forgive me in advance as the promotion department will need to use all available media to get the work out, so you may experience inundation.

It has been a long winter of hibernation, and as tired as I am tonight…

my spirits are lifted by the excitement swirling around the studio…

and I’ll be bringing you all along for the ride.

Yours in straw bale gardens and steaming brushes,

H
