It was quite an experience working on this collaboration with friend and fellow professional artist June Seed. We each started a painting, then exchanged canvases and finished the one the other person had started.

June started THE EYES SEE BEAUTY IN MUSIC. For this work she was inspired by a performance of "La Traviata" in Rome. I didn't know what June had been thinking about when she started the canvas but I liked the collage pieces that had been used. It took me a while to decide on trees which I blended in to June's work.

I found it quite intimidating to finish someone else's work. Would June be critical and wish I had done something else? Would my work be up to her standard? How would I blend my style with hers?

Actually there was no need to worry, I found it was a lot of fun and June loved what I had done and so do I. The collage can be seen at ART THROUGH THE AGES which opens at Lake Country Art Gallery on Wednesday April 8th. I will be sharing more of my exhibits over the next few days.
