Round Robin Painting Project


A few months back my ACEO Group started a Round Robin Painting Project. We were broken down into groups and my group consisted of 6 artists. This is how it worked. We each started a 5"x7" painting. We then shipped it off to the next person on the list and they painted what they wanted and then shipped it off to the next person and so on. When it reached the last person, they painted their part and shipped it back to the original owner. It has been so much fun. My finished piece arrived today all the way from Australia.
I have seen some of the finished works from other groups. They are unbelievable. When I have prints of all the finished pieces, I will post them.
The first picture is my painting and how it looked when I mailed it to the next person. The second picture is how I received it today after the 5 other artists worked on it. Isn't it fun?

It does look like fun! But my gosh---I'm so anal about things, I don't know if I would know when to stop to ship it to the next person!
I love the design and flow of what you started, and then the surprise of the piece you got back!
Nice!

XXOO!!!

It was difficult to know when to stop when working on others paintings. I wanted to keep going with some of my ideas but knew I had to leave room for others to do their part. I think we all had that problem. I am amazed at how they turned out. There are some outstanding ones!

Audrey - It turned out so awesome! This is the first time I have seen it finished as I haven't been into the group today, it was fun to work on and I can't wait to get mine back and post it.

Come by my monday blog, you won't be sorry.

Amanda ~ yes, the back is signed by each artist. I will send you an invite to the ACEO Group. You can get involved and also be part of the next Round Robin if you want.

Marlene ~ Yours is wonderful, too. You should be receiving it after Bev adds her talent. I try to stop by your Blog often ~ I will go there right now as you have peaked my curiosity!
