In the beginning, there were two women (of a certain age) who said, “Let there be paint!” Verily, they returned to college to earn BFA’s. On the last year, one of the women (Stephanie) lit a cigar that begat the seed of open communications with the hermit-woman (Alaine) who fired up her own cigar outside the hellishly hazardous LSU Studio Arts Building. This begat studio sharing, which begat collaborative paintings, which begat more comprehensively linked works. And on the sixth year, the women seeing what they had created, said, “Let there be collaborative series!”. And so it has come to pass.
