Creating art...it's a solitary endeavor. It is a leap of faith, that we connect something true in us to something true in others. My friend Chris and I have been talking about collaboration for a while. We had our first taste this weekend.
Drawing from imagination and dreams, our session spanned seven hours within two days, producing several paintings. Fueled with caffeine and occasional carbs, a real sense of play transpired as we experimented and learned from each other. We talked about technique, color theory and touching the archetype in dreams...interspersed with music and Chris’s theory of heartbreak economics 101.
A beautiful thing, painting alone...and a different beauty, painting together.
Creating toward a child’s initial exposure to universal language...priceless.
