Darton Drake: The Journey

Darton Drake: The Journey

Item Number 1, Live event Tuesday-February 15

Program description

I would like to show and discuss my thought patterns on how we might go from the power of the raw image to the transformation from it’s cocoon. The journey through the heart and mind using the knowledge of our applications and our art to serve how the image speaks to us of it’s needs. We must learn to listen patiently and have a oneness with the image. We must live in the now, without interruptions to the relationship. When the journey is complete you will hardly remember the details of it, only that it was a beautiful one.
