Day 237: Conversation 1

Yesterday Annie and I made 24 paintings. It is our fifth joint 12 in 12 hours (one for every month so far this year) and our third "conversation" 12 in 12 hours. In these conversation 12 in 12 hours, for the first hour we each sit and make a painting. We then trade paintings, and make a new painting in reaction to what the other just painted. The result is two concurrent conversations. Sometimes they are easy to follow, and sometimes they get off topic, just like any other conversation. It is amazing how old themes, previously explored resurface in new and surprising ways. As we played with the powerlines in the first drawing we re-discovered out ocean tent with stars from last month's 12 in 12 hours. Here is the conversation I started.
