You might think I look like Venus. It’s me. I’m left handed. hahahah

After my art folders and favorite paintings got stolen a couple days ago I wondered what was missing and what I still have. I still have one big cardboard folder with some things I was really glad to see. This is one of them. That’s me painting in the nude under the weeping cherry.

I also have a bunch of oil paintings that I’ll try to keep.

Ocean In Motion / Exquisite Corpse / collage

I started this Exquisite Corpse  on the top half and Emma Lou Martin finished it with the bottom half and titled it.

The Exquisite Corpse is a fun art game where 2 or more artists work on a piece and neither knows what the other artist did, because the 1st artist covers what they did except for 1″ in the center. The 2nd artist can see a few lines and colors to connect their half to what the 1st artist leaves showing. You never know if it’s working or not until it’s finished. Then the 2nd artist can uncover the whole thing and have a look. The 2nd artist has the more difficult part. You have to use your imagination. It helps if you can “think outside the box”.

Our Exquisite Corpse show is happening here in Richmond VA. in Sept. at Artworks on Hull St.
