Ambient Painter Mark Rushton talks about 17 different pieces of art photographed for this video. Some are completed, some need a little more work, and some are in very early stages of development.
Sizes range from 8″ x 8″ to 36″ x 36″. All are acrylic on canvas. I’m trying to get into a process of regularly taking pictures of, displaying, and talking about my work.
I’ve done some motion videos showing some of the art before, but not with still images. These pieces are not yet available for sale, but most will be eventually. When a piece becomes available, it will receive it’s own video and will be linked to eBay where it will be up for sale.

This is a a live, 10 minute remix of my track “Chuck Bird” (the original is on my 2008 album “Flow”) using the iOS program Samplr. Created just after Chuck’s would-be 60th birthday and a little more than 11 years after his death.
Chuck Bird was an early internet friend due a mutual appreciation of British guitarist Bill Nelson and other artists. Chuck coordinated and produced fan-created compilation albums of numerous artists, not just Bill Nelson. We talked regularly on the phone and met once for dinner when I lived in Houston in 1997 and his work schedule brought him to town.
Bradley Charles “Chuck” Bird was born November 11, 1957. He died in Nashville, Tennessee after a 30 year battle with diabetes at the age of 49 on November 14, 2006. He graduated from San Pedro High School in 1975.

Golden Delight Bakery is an Amish-run store located at 2228 Johnson-Washington Rd, just north of Kalona, Iowa. They had a couple displays of wind chimes made by Corinthian Bells, so I “played” them for a couple of minutes while my wife purchased kolaches, bread, and cinnamon rolls. The chimes are lower pitched than typical wind chimes and quite expensive. One set was nearly $600. I only captured this via my phone’s audio, but it sounds pretty good with headphones. It also captures the background sound of the bakery and customers.
If you ever go to Golden Delight Bakery, or any of the nearby Amish-run businesses (Maple Ave Greenhouse, Stringtown Grocery, Central Discount salvage grocery store), remember to bring cash or a checkbook. No credit cards or other electronic methods of payments are accepted.
My mom brought a bunch of split sedum plants (stonecrop), and a subdivided a few into a total of 19 plants. These were placed next to Hosta Hillside NW and Hosta Hillside West in the late afternoon of Sunday, May 7, 2017. I’ll call this area Sedum Hillside NW (or Stonecrop Hillside NW).
