This is an oil painting with soundscape by Mark R. Turner. The painting, 35″x35″, was done in Brussels, Belgium, in 1979 and inspired Mark to write a poem 28 years later, 2007, in the mountain community of Julian, California.
As the camera moves over the painting, spoken poetic phrases lead through impressions of an ancient story. Ambient sounds of the scenes mix with contemplative music as you move like a spirit through events which shape eternity. The film is completed when viewers talk about it, for in those conversations it mixes infinitely into real lives.

Blessings to you this Christmastide.
