I love this little film that Pearl made this summer of Shepherd skateboarding out in front of our house. It is really cool when siblings can team up like this and make things. There was no direct parent involvement in this project. Pearl simply followed a creative hunch and Shepherd was willing to be her subject. It is important for artists to learn to observe and she has done that. It is important for an artist to discover the art in their own environment and Pearl has done that. It is also important for the artist to work until she has a technical proficiency and I believe she has done that as well. As a side note, the percussion in the music for this film is provided by a tap dancer. The band is Tilly and the Wall.
