Jenny Hunter Groat – “Her Way”

Length: 6 min   “WHAT IS IT THAT YOU FEAR? SOME ARTISTS SAY THEY FEAR THE BLANK CANVAS, others say they fear other things., ALTHOUGH I AM NEVER NOW AFRAID OF THE BLANK CANVAS, I HAVE OFTEN, IN MY LIFETIME, FEARED SOMETHING. Most often it has been fear of starting something new. IN FACT, I can say that I’ve BEEN AFRAID OF EVERYTHING I’VE EVER BEGUN, BUT I WENT AHEAD AND DID IT ANYHOW” –  Jenny Hunter Groat

    Thank you for a 6-minute oasis. I love it, wanted more. What delight to watch her begin a new piece. “Who are you?”

    Richard: Beautiful. You have infinite patience. Love the way her world is revealed and the work unfolds. Love the Buddhist “temple” bells and water motifs. Such a refreshing film.
