Dueling Paintbrushes - Episode 1

Welcome to Dueling Paintbrushes!

This series pits 2 artists against each other as they compete for... well... bragging rights and the top honor of sleeping on the couch at home.


We came up with this series for a few reasons:

1) We wanted to entertain you
2) We wanted to inspire you
3) We wanted to showcase the beauty of interpretation
4) We wanted to watch mommy and daddy compete! These two are highly, HIGHLY competitive people.

Dave and Rebecca are both skilled artists who—what, with co-running a business, and a home, and co-parenting—rarely get a chance to dabble with artistic pursuits these days. So we decided to have a little fun. We chose an image, separated the two of them and asked them to create their own masterpiece based off of that image. In 30 minutes.

What followed was a plethora of action, sass, creativity, stress, inspiration, you name it! It was truly a fun experiment that we hope you, at home, will take part in.

Once you watch the video, please vote or comment on our YouTube channel as to who you think won the competition. Was it Rebecca and her "Luminescent Tree" or Dave and his "Luminescent Cat." Voting will close 1 week from the initial post date.

Also, please let us know if you'd like to see more of these competitions. Once things settle down in the world around us, we hope to open our doors and invite other artists to join in on the competition where everyone's a winner :)



*The voting has now closed but we still would love to hear your comments!

Hi, I'm Dave, a Canadian-based entrepreneur. I was born an artist and I love to tinker and create things. After studying art and working in marketing, I founded ArtResin in 2008 in response to the toxic and yellowing resin products that were giving me headaches and ruining my artwork.
