Never Before Seen

See this oil painting of angels come alive in 2 minutes (time lapse)

This footage of “We are the Angels that He Sends” (<-visit page for story) has never been seen before in its entirety because I’d lost it. I only had an edited version that was missing some of the painting sessions, whereas this is now the entire painting (time lapsed to be slightly over two minutes long). I finally found the raw files by doing a file extension search on my old portable harddrive and wading through all of the unnamed files until I found the lost footage. This was from my old camera, which is why only the photographs of the final completed painting is in HD. But, even though the video is grainier than I’d like, it’s still good to have the complete video. I’m happy I found the lost files!
