Collaboration: Stephen B. MacInnis, Phillip J. Mellen

Stephen B. MacInnis and I have begun a collaboration. Using my short poems and musings, coupled with Stephen's paintings. I have mailed Stephen a sheet of my writings and he is then making paintings that have my writings as an element. His paintings still remain bright and highly abstract, even though my texts usually explore love and other mysteries.
I hope you enjoy this post, holding the first three paintings in this ongoing series.
Please visit Stephen's blog, there you will find more of his work along with a great interview series he has been putting together: Painter's Progress

All paintings are 12" x 12" mixed media on paper
