I’m so excited to share this new collaboration with you all. My talented friend Meagan Beishline from Madeline Bea is the Skein side of Skein + Paint and I am the Paint side. She had this wonderful idea to spark our creative minds and I am excited to see how it flows. Every Monday we will be posting to our blogs, Instagram and FB. Read our official intro below. Enjoy friends.
Skein + Paint is a collaboration between two friends who share a love of color, texture, and art. Their idea was simple: that the crossing and mixing of various art forms would inspire something more. By using each other’s work as inspiration, they would stretch within their own work, gain insight into how others view that work, and inspire themselves and others toward future work. Creating in their respective mediums, each week one of them will have provided an image as a prompt and the other will have interpreted that prompt. Dana will be bringing images to life by hand with pencils, paints, pens, etc. Maegan will be working with yarn coupled with photography. The image that was the prompt will be featured on the left and the image that was the interpreted response will be on the right.
