    5 out of 5 stars

    I love Mask Without a Hero. I love it's originality, the superb construction of the frame. Very professionally presented. Shipped right away and included were some extra goodies for being the shop's first purchaser!!!

Collaborative art sometimes yields wonderfully unexpected results

Bruce Bachelder and Mike Rende often collaborate on paintings together. Challenging themselves and each other to push their composition and color usage beyond what either would do by themselves. (sometimes their friends even join in too!)

When working on a painting with someone else, you really need to either clearly communicate what you had in mind for the piece of art or accept the wonderful piece of artwork that happens when your collaborator takes the painting in a direction you did not expect.

That is what happens when these two (and friends) start painting. Sometimes it comes together as planned, sometimes it takes a surprising turn and becomes something even more wonderful.
