Two Artists, One Painting

It is not completely uncommon for two artist to collaborate on one work of art, but for Florida Landscape artist Peter Pettegrew, it was a first. The idea came from Henry Von Genk, after he overheard a collector mention that he would love to see a painting where Peter did the sky and Henry did the landscape. It was during a showing at Fredlund Gallery in Winter Park, Florida and when the two artist were paired up for a two-man show the following year, Henry recalled the idea and presented it to Peter.
