Video: I Saw Two Clouds - The Making of an Art Journal

I had written music to John Brainard's poem "I Saw Two Clouds" for SATB chorus and piano in 2010 and also transcribed it this year per a request for SSA chorus and harp.  I love to combine my various interests such as photography and animation with my music. Recently I took an online art journaling course from Valerie Sjordin to create a journal with embellished edges and shaped letters. I had never taken an art course before or had much experience with using color in my drawings except for computer graphics but this course was very relaxed and allowed me to experiment.  John Brainard's poem was perfect for creating the page designs because it had so many word pictures in it.  In this video you will hear the harp version of "I Saw Two Clouds".  The art journal is shown in various stages from penciled sketches and inked-in outlines to the final painted pages using watercolor pencil.  Please enjoy!
