About this project
For You and Yours, is a year long painting project, that is about you! Paintings that are a conversation, a rumination, and an exploration into your mind. Painting has the great ability to express human truths- dreams, desires, love, imperfection, hope and so much more.
You can take part in this project, by choosing a reward level/painting colaboration to the right of the screen. Find one that excites you and get your brain imagining. It is important to me that painting be accessible. I hope to do this in two ways. First, by making you a part of the process of creation. Second, by making artwork that is affordable! (no copies of any kind will be used in the making of this work)
Rauschenberg once said that a word inspires an image and an image a word. For this painting project, it is my hope to use your words to inspire ideas and images, and paintings. To make this a real conversation, different from a commission, I ask that you only provide me with words.
The Rewards go far beyond the monetary. You get an artwork inspired by your thoughts and I get your inspiration. This is an experiment in art as conversation!
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
