Au revoire, ma soeur
Creativity leaps when you work with a compatible companion.
I’ve been writing lately about my experience with my sister, Barb, during a recent visit, where we created art together. As I noted in the title, creativity leaps when in the presence of a compatible companion. Ideas were shooting out of our heads like firecrackers. I’ll have more to say about that later.
Previously, I had shown Barb’s ripped, cut, sewn watercolor canvas. I have included it again, below.

Here is her completed piece:
Barb's completed piece: acrylic on watercolor paper
Barb described working on this as “painting eight small, connected paintings.” Interesting. Perhaps it’s a different way to do a series, or we could call it an octych. In any case, she found the method fascinating, and is now indebted to the Fran Skiles’ art process, as am I.
