My son Christopher is an aspiring filmmaker. In the fall of 2011 – not long after I began working with encaustic paint – we took a road trip together to my hometown of Redding, California. I had decided to create some images based on my hometown for my first public showing of my art. Christopher decided to join me and document the experience as part of a film school assignment. While the work – as well as the creative process itself – documented in this video is a bit dated now, it still captures a moment in time my son and I enjoyed together very much.
