Blue Sky Collaboration

© Ellen Blonder and Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp
My daughter Lisa started this 30 x 30-inch canvas, inspired by Rene Magritte's "An Empire of Light." She's moving to Toronto tomorrow, and isn't taking the canvas with her. We're turning this into a collaborative project. I won't take her up on such a difficult challenge as copying a Magritte, but I do love her sky so far, and will see what I can add.
We used to do collaborative drawings when Lisa was young, with each of us adding a few lines to a drawing each time we passed it back and forth. This will be a grown-up version.
By the way, Lisa's blog with her current work is at
