I am so grateful to live in Oregon and to have been able to witness this awe inspiring event! I went with my family and closest friends to a remote location in Oregon.
I first video taped the changing light of the eclipse in a bowl of water. I've been enjoying experimenting with video lately. I then created a time-lapse video of the water and edited in sound from those of us who were at the eclipse together including my children. You can't miss the gasps and sense of wonder! I then used the solar eclipse infused water in this water color painting. I was struck by the multiple solar crescents projected in the shadows of trees, a million tiny projections of the phenomenon above. The painted crescents remind me of the millions of viewers who turned their eyes to the heavens in wonder, their eyes also filtering, perceiving, projecting this amazing event. One sun, millions of shared experiences.
You can check out my process, view the water video, and see the time lapse video of this painting on my instagram feed! https://www.instagram.com/artwithamirra/
