Spirit ~ A painting is born! Watch the process by video...

Spirit,  22 x 30" Acrylic on paper

I thought it would be interesting to try something I've never done before! 
I took many photos of the painting, Spirit, which you see above - and have now created a video of its creation.  Its set to music by Albinoni, and is not quite 3 min. long. 
I hope you enjoy seeing it unfold from concept to finished painting!
