GAIL YOUNGQUIST AND VICKI VORMEHR
TWO FLORIDA GIRLS THAT MOVED TO KANSAS DURING THEIR COLLEGE YEARS HAD
NEVER MET UNTIL THEY HAD GRADUATED FROM SEPARATE KANSAS SCHOOLS; ONE
A JAYHAWK, AND ONE A WILDCAT.  A COMMON FRIEND BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER
AFTER GRADUATION. THIS HAS PROVEN TO HAVE BECOME A LONG, LONG
FRIENDSHIP. AND WITH ALL THAT LIFE CAN THROW AT YOU, THE CREATION OF ART
SEEMS TO BE THE THREAD THAT HOLDS IT ALL TOGETHER.  THEY WOULD MEET FOR
COFFEE AND TALK OVER THE IDEAS THEY HAD FOR THE NEXT PAINTING. SOMETIMES
VICKI WOULD DO A WATER COLOR OF THE IDEA OR GAIL A PENCIL, BUT THEN CAME
THE LARGE OILS PAINTINGS AND IT WAS MUCH MORE FUN WORKING ON THEM
TOGETHER. THE YEARS OF WORKING TOGETHER HAD PROVEN THAT THE END
RESULT IN EACH ARTIST'S MIND WAS A GOOD THING. THEY ARE NOT SURE OF HOW
MANY ARTISTS HAVE ATTEMPTED TO PAINT TOGETHER IN THE PAST, BUT THEY DO
KNOW THAT EVERY TIME THEY PAINT IN THE PUBLIC, THEY GET ALL KINDS OF
QUESTIONS ABOUT TWO ARTISTS PAINTING ON THE SAME PAINTING. ONE MAN EVEN
ASKED IF IT WAS LEGAL. HOW CRAZY IS THAT? IT IS THEIR CREATION FROM THE
COFFEE TO THE CANVAS. IT MAKES SENSE FOR THESE TWO GIRLS TO PAINT
TOGETHER. THEY HAVE BEEN A TEAM OF ARTISTIC TALENT FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
