Call and Response

"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart".
William Wordsworth
Last night I sat around a table with four of my favorite people: my mother, my dear friend Caroline and her daughter Zoe. Four women between the ages of 18 and 60. We had gathered together for a fun art experiment: Call and Response. Each of us began an art piece; a  call. The art was then passed to the next of us, and so on. We did not see our art for the next two hours. There was conversation everywhere... two pots of tea were drunk, and we used our heart's breathings to respond to each other's call. No mark ever fell on neutral ground.
Angela's Call: Till She Can Bring Her Beauty
The Response: She Must be The Beast


Bonnie's Call: Angle of Destination?
The Response: The sun sets each day, so it may rise again.

Zoe's Call

The Response


Caroline's Call: real beauty, old age, wrinkled, get older, every wrinkle, smile line, marks of wisdom

The Response: her beauty, your eyes.
Can't you just feel our hearts? Don't you wish you were there?
