There are cooperative arts made by combinations of Marina Greeno-Mcneil, Matt Reynolds, Jesse Blount and myself, Jesse Black. The paper gets folded so that each artist does their bit without having seen the rest of the bits. Marina instigated this whole initiative. Keep it up!
I have a thing for landscapes. I’m not sure why it is, but I always find myself drawing them with crayon or pencil crayon or doodling them with pen on printer paper at Second Cup. I had a wedding this weekend and as a person who strongly believes that “handmade” gifts are much more reflective of love than “purchased” gifts, I thought I should make them something. With a lack of pottery to donate to my “wedding gift charity” and no way of throwing up a few bowls by this past Saturday, I decided to take a wack at a painting. I have never really painted before unless you count grade 8 art class and the first time I used watercolours was this past fall when I needed to design a set of dishes.I wasn’t sure what the painting was going to turn out to be.. I just went at it and OF COURSE, it’s a landscape.
Needless to say I’m pretty excited about this painting and am stoked to hear what my wedding-giftees think of it, but they don’t get back from their honeymoon for another two weeks. So here it is on Arttime.
