The Art of Collaborating and More...
Seven pairs have sold, fifteen have gone to Backdoor Gallery and fifteen more are slated for delivery to LibertyTown on Monday. Santa's elves have been busy. Click on the picture to see them more closely.
This is my kind of art--no two pairs alike and collaborating with an amazingly creative person like Lynette.
I enjoy the collaborative process. If two artists are in tune, things can go one of two ways for success--either one starts the process and then stays out of the other's way to let them do their part (like my cool collaborator, Tex Forrest, did with Wilbur.)
Or the artists sit side by side and work together, bouncing ideas off of each other, asking opinions and generally fueling a runaway train of creativity and fun. That's the way it works with Lynette and me. It is so all-absorbing that we look up two hours later, with aching necks and cranky from lack of lunch--or cookies!
I would love to hear other stories of collaboration. Did they go well? Not so well? Dump it in my comments section.
