Volley Painting

Greg and I were asked to make a large painting for an interested party. We decided to make a group of small paintings to get some ideas for a larger one. Painting just back round colors at first, we "volleyed" the paintings back and forth; Adding to each others colors, shapes, ideas, we watched them take shape. Destroying each others ideas was also a big part of the process: When we got a painting with a "piece of crap" on it we could kill it by covering it with a magazine clipping or more paint. If something you liked was cut, why you could just kill something the other person liked, real civilized! These are some of the preliminary paintings that we really liked. They are hanging in the "Dream Collective" show now.
