DO THE WORK
VLOG CHAPTER 55
BTS WITH CHARLES AND JENNIFER MARING
FILMED ON THE LUMIX GH5 + GX85
There is so much creativity flowing out of our studio at the moment. Some of it's new, other parts we have been working on for weeks, months, and even years. Bottom line, we have been doing the work. A while back somebody asked me if I feared putting ourselves out there in new ways. Of course we do! But, if we allow fear to cripple our creativity we won't be able to contribute the the world further.
I think too many artists get complacent, especially once they have a bit of success. The truth of the matter is your successes will be short lived if you don't evolve and reinvent yourself as an artist, and if you truly want to grow you have to explore more than one side of your creative being. So, this little vlog shares just that... We are living in fear, yet we continue onward and do the work, and slowly are are witnessing first hand personal growth. You can fail just as easy sitting still as you can moving forward. At least when you move forward you make waves, and waves are something you can ride once you gain some experience.
This chapter takes you behind the scenes of our week, which included a wedding in Newport, RI, Live Jamming with my rock band, painting in the art studio, and enjoying what's left of summer at our Connecticut home. Special thanks to our friends and wedding couple Kayt and Angela as well as my band members Dan, Bob, Jeff, and Jay for being on this creative journey with us!
Cheers, Charles and Jennifer
