The Joy of Collaboration
Extraordinary in the Ordinary
Every once in awhile I have the joy (I could use many words to express this) of collaborating with good friends at our various Retreats. The painting above was painted by Dean Bauche, Jan Layh and myself at our Retreat in Denare Beach, SK this past summer. Rocks were the theme of many participating artists as this location is well known for the Precambrian outcroppings abounding about there (some are loaded with precious minerals like zinc, copper and gold). I was entrusted to take this painting home and finish it, the only demand was that I didn't break the first rule. People in the know will understand what that means! I only had to sharpen up some lines and do a bit of glazing. Seems like its done.
