Downeast Maine camping with friends evolved into a spurt-framed portrait of artist/teacher Donn Moulton. Framed within Moulton at work and play, underscored by talk of art, film, purpose…is cut in counterpoint with edit-in-camera expressionistic sequences from camplife. The rough-edged cross-cut free-wheeling form reflects ways my early and highly intuitive notions of art-making differed radically from Moulton’s even while learning to exploit my blunders and think with my hands.
