Collaboration


This last week has been huge. In that time I have spent several days at a 15 woman gathering in Washington state and following that a visit to a friend's house where 5 of us collaborated on as many paintings. We completed 5 canvases together until we agreed the canvases were finished (more or less. they are probably still evolving).

To see the video I made of the painting process just follow this link. And thank you Katie, Misty, Stephanie and Jen. A nice round of applause.

There is so much more to share but one thing at a time. I am frankly swamped under email and personal stuff. It seems like life is coming at me faster and faster.

BTW, this is my first edited video. You guys are awesomely patient with my learning. I feel so proud every time I try something new like this. xo

Hi Judy! I followed Misty's link to your video and I have to tell you that watching it, and listening to the music with it, transformed my heavy-heartedness into instant sunshine and thankfulness! Thank you for sharing this with us! It's humbling and inspiring to see the creative energies of the five of you collaborating! I would love to have been a part of that activity! Happy Easter! Annie
PS. Could you e-mail me the name of the song you used for that video and the artist who performed it? Thanks!

Judy Wise said...

The music behind the video is "Senegal Fast Food" by Amadou and Miriam. I love it too; that harmonica drives me wild.

Artgirl said...

Thanks Judy! Yes! That harmonica calls to my gypsy soul!
