I have worked in a variety of media but documentary filmmaking was the one that demanded the widest area of creative skills. in order to raise money for a film one must be able to describe the project in written proposals, outlines and scripts are needed. aside from having to communicate one's aims to potential funders, it's important to convey one's aims to those with whom one will be working. Putting together a film is like constructing a 3d jigsaw puzzle; levels of sound and image must be edited in order to tell a coherent story. My paintings contain stories some part of which may reach the viewer. writing is more direct, in many ways a simpler means of communicating. we all use words, we know what words mean or we think we do. nuance, the double entendre, irony, sarcasm, misleading statements and outright lies make things more complicated. that saying, 'a picture's worth a thousand words' is never more true than when the written word has to somehow convey the expressiveness of the spoken word. I have enormous respect for the great writers, good writers and really anyone that can sit down and write a book or article. I never thought I would seek to join those ranks. my other endeavors have given me certain abilities and somehow that mysterious force known as creativity within me is finding expression in the written word. My first forays into non-fiction, "The A to Z book of birds", "The A to Z book of weeds and other useful plants" and "the A to Z of wildflowers" are essentially picture books. the paintings I did for each book are accompanied by text about each of the paintings. this follows the format of my, "Magic faces, Caras magicas" though in that case the paintings were completed as stand alone art pieces with the text coming later. Fiction writing is a venture into uncharted territory which is proving to be as intriguing, exciting, mysterious, rewarding and enjoyable as any i have traveled. i hope to continue adding to the works i have already published and to discovering more ways to connect with readers.
