Collage 19

Yesterday Lynn, Lulu and I spent the day together in the studio. We have finished about 56 collages at this point, although we are still waiting for Melissa, my studio mate, to finish #36. We have limited ourselves to just a few paint colors: chrome green, burnt sienna, transparent gold and cadmium red. We also use black and white. It is amazing how much you can do with a very limited palette. Yesterday Lynn got inspired to work in gray, so we used a lot of that. Lulu is also enamored with the luscious orange, the result of the transparent gold and cadmium red.

Working together on this project is interesting on many levels. A new one we discussed yesterday was how this allows us a new level of intimacy with each other. We all work in our unique ways which is a mirror of who we are in the rest of our lives. We've know each other for 30 years, and yet we are discovering each other in fresh ways.
