I am working with two other artists on a collaborative art project for a show called Bits and Pieces produced by Side Street Studio Arts. Chris Palm is the first artist. He tends to sketch in a sketchbook most of the time. He has agreed to enlarge one of his drawings onto this large panel. I like his line work. I think we all agreed that his drawing would be a great first layer.
The other artist is Hallie Sanclemente Morrison. Her website is here: https://halliemorrison.myportfolio.com .
She is going to use her beautiful torn paper technique on the middle layer. She cut the 36x48" thrift store art panel that I found into this curvilinear shape, gessoed it and gave it to Chris. Chris did a couple of more layers of gesso, then started DRAWING.
I am super grateful and proud of Chris for working much larger than he is used to.
I am feeling a lot of suspense. I have no idea what direction Hallie is going to go! As soon as I get an inkling for what she is going to do, I have to sit on my hands. I will probably add beads on top, but, again, that depends on what the other two have done. I might paint. I might add found objects. No idea at this point.
