The fascinating thing about painting together with other artists is that your work is constantly painted over. You can never tell what the painting will be like. It's much like fooling around, but serious.

This method of creating is full of suprises. Because every artist brings in his own form-language and signature, the style integration is a stunning process. As if somebody else had been painting instead.

At a certain moment the finishing touch is there. Since all participants have their own criteria about a good work of art, there has to be a kind of consensus about quality. The results often seem ugly but outstanding though!

Anything between eureka and serendipity.
