Original Art, Artisan Works and Photographs by Jan Jenkins and Brian Erickson

I've been involved in three "secret" projects the last few months, one was an invitation to participate in Manitoba Art Networks "Digital Originals" creative collaboration between a Manitoba musician paired with a Manitoba visual artist.  The visual artist (me) creates an original artwork inspired by one of the musician's songs and the musician (Raine Hamilton) creates and performs a new original song inspired by one of the visual artists artworks.  The biggest challenge for me was the technology, learning how to video myself creating my artwork.   And we are airing the results live on YouTube April 1st at 7:30pm! 

Please join us live Thursday April 1st 7:30 pm central time for the creative reveals and interview session.   Raine has created and performed an original song inspired by my artwork "New Day", and I have created "Silent Offering" an original artwork inspired by Raine's beautiful "Brave Land" (formerly Creek Cabin) song.  I can't wait to see it all come together! A huge thank you to Manitoba Arts Network for making this collaboration possible.
