An art walk of sorts

I love seeing street art; it’s a glimpse of what others see and how they see.

Collaboration – Spray Painting & Friends

This is My Blog; I am going to be posting my art, my process, my struggles and triumphs. I am looking forward to sharing my life, my art and my experiences with the world. Come along and see what happens. In my experience we are who we are because of our family and friends and so it’s fitting that my first post would be about a friend and I working together to create a fantastic piece of artwork.

Yesterday my friend Modupe and I collaborated on a painting. We began with a large 60″x 72″ canvas and a couple of rum and cokes (well, I was having a rum and coke – she was having rum on the rocks). We sat on lawn chairs outside in my back yard and looked at this big empty canvas. There was a large box of Montana Spray Paint and a cup full of different caps and we talked about what we were going to do.

Half way through our drinks she picked up a can of shock red and put a dot of red at the bottom corner and we were off and spraying.

It was a really sunny afternoon and we laughed, sprayed and drank for 3 1/2 hours and ended with the most amazing collaborative painting. Take a look and tell me what you think.
