I had an idea.
I thought it would be fun to do a project together.
John and I have worked on a piece together a few times,
he would start it and I would finish it.
This would be different.
It's not paper and marker.
We would go back and forth with it and adding what we desired.
We both picked out a canvas, 24 x 30.. inches.
Yesterday I unwrapped it and decided I would start by putting on some background color.
Instead of painting my usual blues, I asked John what he would like as a background and he suggested the color of the walls.. in the gallery room which is yellow or the studio room which is pink.
I chose both plus white.
We both liked the results and I just sat and stared at it,
coming up with images, (volcanoes, spirits, fish..)
and feelings of where it might go from here.
I felt it had an ethereal feel..
"Genesis" said John.
More ideas flew through my head.
I thought of attachment, both emotional and physical.
On the ride home we discussed it as if it were a marriage.
My work, his work coming together as one creation.
I have excitement and anticipation for this new creation
and what we will give birth to.
