My friends Denise and Chrissa used to come over to my studio on rainy Seattle afternoons and paint with me. We'd each start a painting and when someone said "stop", we'd have to switch paintings at that very moment and start working on whichever painting was handed to us. Wine and chocolate were always used to enhance the experience. We produced so many paintings this way that we developed a collaborative logo (see bottom right). Starting a painting and then giving up control by allowing another artist to paint over your work is a skill-enhancing experience and a good way to learn how to let go of attachments. Here's a small mixed media sketch created by the three of us.
