STOP MOTION MEETS TRADITIONAL ART by Sheila Thomas. "I will be showing stop motion animated paintings on a T.V. screen. The process is recorded with a video camera and set to music. The finished product is the video and also the painting on canvas. I will also be showing traditional art works on canvas. Most of my traditional works are portraits in various styles."
