Guess what I just did …
What is “collaborative painting”? This description of the first project will give you an idea:
I propose that the first project on this organizing forum be a collaborative painting based on my photo-pano-collage, “Living by the East River”. Because I expect to enlist painters who may live by rivers other than the East, I propose that this project be titled “Living by the River”
Each of the 100 grid sections in my collage image, will be painted on separate canvasses. Ideally, each of the 100 canvas painted by a different collaborating painter.
When complete, all painters would ship their finished canvas to the exhibition space where they would be hung together make one painting.
All painters would be credited and would share proportionally in any benefit coming from being one of the collaborators of “Living by the River”.
How cool is that?
The ultra-talented artist Ray Reynolds has proposed a second project on the network already:
To have a collaborative painting (in a medium of your choice…in either paint, textiles, mixed media collage, etc) of cities, town and villages from where you live.
A merging of my two favorite things: social networks and art.
