  Video of me and my work
This is the video of me that was made last winter by my friend and videographer Wade Britzius. It was a fun project at least from my point of view--all I had to do was talk and paint! I'm so pleased with what Wade came up with in editing and producing this. The soundtrack is by my nephew David Crowell, a composer and musician currently performing with the Philip Glass Ensemble.

So, here I am in my studio--allowing the world to see the truth of my messy work table, ratty painting clothes and all! Nothing was cleaned up. I might have done so if I'd had more notice, but Wade called me one day and said he'd be in my neighborhood, and could we do the shoot in a few hours? I ended up liking that realistic, gritty aspect of it.

Mainly I wanted to share a bit of my process, and how I think about my work. This video played in the gallery when I had my solo exhibit at Darnell Fine Art in Santa Fe in July, and people seemed to enjoy having the bit of personal background and information that it provided.

Rebecca,
The use of color and the luminosity of your pieces are beautiful. Great video!Thanks for sharing.

What a great video! Really well made, and you come across so well. Very personable and interesting. Hmm... I'd love to try doing one of these myself. Maybe I could get one of my brothers to hold the video camera..... :-)
 
...and I love your studio. I really enjoy my own space, but there are many days I wish it wasn't upstairs from the kids' play room!
 
Thanks very much, Liz and Daniel. And I can surely recommend my video guy for anyone out there who wants to give this a try (though Daniel I suspect you are a ways from Wisconsin?)
 
I found this video thanks to Karen Jacobs's blog. Very inspirational. Thanks for sharing your processes. Absolutely love your art.
 
Great video, so glad you posted it on your blog. Although I was at your opening in Santa Fe, I didn't have the time to sit and watch it that evening. It's wonderful to see some of your process and hear you talk about your art. Thanks!
 
Catherine Carter sent me to see this video. Great job, Rebecca! And I love your work.
 
Thank you for all the comments! By the way, I am in Spain right now and not able to use the computer so often so it may take awhile for comments to be approved....I´m so glad the video is proving to be interesting and useful, happy to hear form everyone--
