A friend and I video taped our art play as we traded canvases after each step – see how it all turned out!

Artistic collaboration is a fantastic way to spur growth and creative exploration.  When Kirsten Reed stopped by for a visit, we wanted to create together with a twist.  After we completed each layer, we traded canvases.  Working layer by layer, our styles collided and crashed and pushed us each out of our comfort zones in the best [...]

I’m using spray paints with a stencil to create patterned paper

My mission was to use up all my old spray paints since I rarely use them now that I have found some that smell less, are easier to clean up, and have the exact colors I love.  I covered the table with a painting tarp, grabbed my boxes of paints, and even had a little [...]

This is way more fun than dropping off the dry cleaning!  Just a few minutes with some Dylusions paints and I was lost in play.  Enjoy a chuckle while you watch the video...it felt like I solved a Rubix cube when [...]
