For the past month one of my dear friends, Terri Keller and I, have been swapping canvases back and forth in preparation for Art(ology)’s Collaborart Show for Artwalk October 11th. We each started the canvases with random marks, collage, or paint and added our own influence with each swap. This was WAY harder than I thought because I was worried, “Am I covering up too much of her work?” The entire process was a great learning experience because it made me really evaluate how I go about deciding what is important enough to keep in a painting and what is worth letting go of.
Here are the process images for each piece! They are now on display at the gallery and will be part of the show Friday evening.
