A Mixed Media Collaboration with Ayala Art (Part 2)!

(Painted Foreground: Part 2 of 2 of our collaboration)

"I paint self portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best."
- Frida Kahlo 

Wheeeeeee: the results are in! 

The collaborative between myself and Ayala Art is now complete & ready for viewing. If you missed last week's post in which I explained what we were up to, just pop over here to check it out. If you're ready to see how we completed the backgrounds we created for each other on YouTube, just take a peek below. . . .

Here's what I finished for Ayala Art:

And - lucky, lucky me - here's what she finished for me:

Thanks for watching along! It was a blast to do, Ayala Art is as sweet-as-can-be, and I can't wait to play again.

Until next time.

A Mixed Media Collaboration with Ayala Art!

(Painted & collaged background: Part 1 of 2 of our collaboration)

"I think it is in collaboration that the nature of art is revealed."
- Steve Lacy

I have something exciting to share! Not only have I just completed my first YouTube video of the year, but it is in the form of a collaboration with my friend and artist from Ayala Art! How cool is that?

SO, how did it all go down? (It was fun and easy really). We each decided to create a background on a predetermined substrate, which in this case, was an 8 x 10 canvas panel. I created a background for her to complete, and she did the same for me. We then mailed our canvases to each other to film the rest of the process. So in the end, we will have a total of four videos to share, 2 from each of us.

Wanna see what we did with our first background videos? Okay then, here we go! Below you can find the video I created for Ayala Art:

And here is what she created for me to complete:

Check 'em out and let me know what you think! Then tune in a week from today to see how we completed our given canvas. Fun, yes? (I agree). 

Until next time!
