Haight and Stephanie Cunningham create collaborative paintings
called "Duets". Each artist works independently
and they join their finished canvases together to form one united
paints soulful landscapes, providing a moody environment for Betty’s
figurative work. The attraction of working collaboratively is the opportunity to blend opposite points of view. Stephanie creates a story line for each finished Duet painting. This leads the viewer to the possibilities of interaction between the figures and their environment. The "story tag" is attached to the back of each canvas.
the finished "Duet" is framed with pieces of scrap
wood embellished with paint and paper left over from the materials
used in the creative process.
"Duets" are shown at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach. You can also view their work on the movie set of "The Proposal" staring Sandra Bullock, in "The Last Song," a Nicholas Sparks film, and on episodes of the TV series "The Young and the Restless," as well as in a Barbara Streisand comedy released in 2012.
