A chilly round 2 of light paintings in Morrow, Ohio with Quang Ho, one of my all time favorite artists and humans.
For this series of images Quang attached the flashlight to the tip of a 8 foot fallen tree branch which allowed him to view the motions of his strokes from a distance. Generally the flashlight is held by hand. Also this was the first time he's attempted this technique and his 2nd try at light painting.
Over the years I’ve been lucky to watch him work his magic with numerous mediums. And still to this day his range of subjects and styles has yet to lose its essence of surprise. Whether it be on canvas, or with a stick and a flashlight, this guy knows his craft.

Artist, friend, mentor, and brother from another mother, Quang Ho and his family have had a huge influence on my life and artistic path from a young age.
Amidst a holiday dinner and with the aid of a quality single barrel scotch I was able to convince him to step outside and paint with a flashlight for a portrait idea I had in mind for him.
I ran these exposures manually from around 20 seconds to a minute long, depending on the duration needing to complete the light painting. Incredible watching him blindly scribe the area with a basic flashlight to create these forms almost effortlessly.
Good fun and quite an honor collaborating with the humble master.
