Ready for the Exhibition!

Phew! It came together!

If you didn't read my last post, myself and some friends have been working on some paintings for a local exhibition. Sounds pretty standard, but the twist is that one of our paintings has to be a collaboration, i.e, two of us working together on the same painting. Whilst it started out quite a daunting prospect, I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and have found the experience of joining forces with my painting partner, Ursula of Studio Christel, extremely liberating and fun!

So here it is -  our collaborative piece, entitled "A New Day"

And my own submission, "Break forth like the Dawn"

The exhibition opens on Thursday night and runs for the month of September.

Collaborative art

I am presently woking towards a local art exhibition which involves both individual and collaborative pieces. Myself and a group of fellow artist friends have joined forces, to each create our own piece and another related collaberative piece. Sharing a painting with someone else, has been an interesting, if not daunting process so far. Our overall theme amongst our group is "Let there be Light" and the joint canvas I am sharing with Ursula of Studio Christel is titled "A New Day"  Below are some pics to show the beginnings of our creation. More to follow!

Ready for the next stage

And whilst on the subject of collaborations, check out these masterpieces created by willing children from my church. Their individual pieces of mini loose canvases have been grouped together to form collaborative pieces of art, to be auctioned off for a fundraiser.
