For My Sister: The Girl on a Swing

I got my inspiration for the color palette and editing of the video from this classic painting by Maxfield Parrish.

Cheryl, the Girl on a Swing

In March of 2015, my sister, Cheryl Long, came to visit, and we climbed Swing Hill on Mt. Pisgah. I have combined that video with some of a Mother’s Day balloon ascent to make a video that says something about my sister as an artist who still has the soul and vision of a child.

This is another very emotional video I made about her┬áCheryl and her Golden Retriever Ryle one golden afternoon in the Cle Elum River, Nov. 2013, to the Eva Cassidy song “Fields of Gold.”

I am publishing this on June 12, 2017, to celebrate her birthday and out many years of friendship and collaboration.
