Thanks for the holiday greeting, Val.

Hmmm...wouldn't it be great if we could all participate in painting one Christmas picture.  Not sure how it could be done, but I'm sure one of the more techie among us could come up with a way.

It's something I wanted to introduce in the newsletter but just don't understand how to do it.

Every PB Forum member around the world could add a small piece to the picture.  C'mom, techies, figure this one out.

Sorry Mea, I don't understand what you have in mind...  what additional high-tech do you need?
Cheers, Annie

Annie,

I envision a painting where someone paints the first few strokes, then someone adds to it, and so on and so on. 

It would have to be somewhere on the web and we would each add something to the previous strokes (or maybe even add some new strokes at a different spot).

I know people do collaboration on documents, I just don't know how we'd do it on a painting.

Hope that makes sense.

WHOA ....Slow down, Annie.  We first have to figure out how we can do it.

Hi All,
Been away too long ..mis browsing PB!

Mea I saw once where the organizers put together a picture and was cut into pieces and given to the participants..only when all came together people could figure out what the painting was about.Hope am making sense.
Maybe you can work along that line.

There you go Mea... you send each who wants to participate a little piece of the puzzle. And only when all is done do you post the pieces randomly and we try to figure it out... and if not you post the solved puzzle

Your first idea is good too... and there maybe more coming up 💃
Cheers, Annie

I believe Richard Robinson was involved with that project. It was really interesting to see the painting once all the pieces were completed and pieced together. So many different styles incorporated, but the quiltworked painting was easily recognizable none the less.
