Collaboration with Mona

Today I went to a painting event in Montrose Beach with my friend Mona. A man named Andrew DeLaRosa, who runs Gallery B1E in Rogers Park, gave us paint and a canvas and brushes. We ate chips and made a collaborative painting:

Acrylic, graphite, and charcoal on canvas, like 12" x 18" possibly

It's weird how collaborative it actually ended up being. It does look like a hybrid of our work, my intuitive organic matter and disturbing sorts of drawings with the hesitancy that Mona's paintings have. I think it's quite good. The more I look at it the more I realize what a good painting it is.


I think about 4' x 5', I'll measure it later. Distemper, gouache, watercolor, acrylic, graphite, and charcoal.


I won $100 in a painting contest

First prize! It will pay for my materials for finals. Whee!
