The KISS Factor
Well…it is hard and easy to explain all at once. To keep it simple I will explain how our group of artists does it.
How does it work, you ask?
Each person paints a background on a piece of paper that is 8″ x 10″. The thicker the better because it has to be able to travel all over the world and not get ruined. In our current groups the minimum is 4 people and the largest has been 6, and the group is made up of all levels of artistic abilities. It is less about the art and more about the connection to others. The art is lovely and always inspiring.
Each artist involved sends their painted background on to the next person on the list and they paint something on the background that inspires them. Sometimes they have it for a day and sometimes longer. The aim is to try to move it along to the next person within 10 days and to try to add and not take away from what anyone else has done. Then they pass it on to the next person, and so on, and so on, and so on, until the finished painting comes back to the original owner. Here is the background I sent out just before the new year. I used a piece of thick, textured, scrapbooking paper and acrylic paint.
Here is the collective/collaborative painting I received back the other day.
