more collaboration

Since our painting collaboration, my husband Andy and I have been hard at work combining our creativity! Once a week we sit down and plan out a drawing/painting and then each of us takes time to work on it. First Andy does what he does best- black and grey portraits in pencil and then I go in and "mess it up" with color and pattern. This process of working together on art has been quite simply....MAGIC (and something that seems to be improving our marriage- go figure). We have an entire series planned out that we are creating and soon, very soon we'll be offering prints of our work. I thought I would share a look at one of our recent collaborations. 

P.S. For the last 6 years I've been nagging gently encouraging Andy to create a blog of his own where he can document and share his art. Well, it finally happened! You can head over HERE or andrewgunthardt.blogspot.com if you would like to follow his journey as an artist.

  3. Hello Alisa, I love your work! I don't write very well in English (Google helps me!) but I just want to tell you that your "mess it up" is fantastic!
    From your work shines a true passion for art and collaborations with 4 hands with your husband are the most beautiful I have ever seen! Never stop it because it can bring out the best of you! Is an explosive mix!
    I am graphic designer and I like to draw, but since the birth of my baby (16 months, is conscripted for Lucy!), It's hard to do everything (how can you have a blog?) ... I vent my creativity in my job and I try to excite my puppy to everything that is art, inspired by you! I waiting for new ideas, an embrace between "creative"! Ely (North Italy)

  46. HI Alisa!
    I love this post so much! It reminds me when my husband and I were dating, we would collaborate on art projects..just doodles, but so much fun! Did your husband draw on watercolor paper? Just curious, because the paper did take the water colors so well! Thx ~
