Visiting the Past

This morning…. I was going through where I store my older works and I came across this from a painting class I took many years ago.


The process : the instructor placed images of famous works of art on a table… there were two images of each painting. So in the room there was another individual that had the same image that you did.


We were paired up with this individual and one of the images was torn in half and each of us received one half of the image and then sent to our easel to recreate the half of the painting we were given… four hours later we paired back up with our other half and placed our paintings together to create a complete finial piece.


This is my half of “ A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jette” by Seurat.


I wonder what the individual who created the other half of this painting is doing in their life today?
