Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap
What a great experience!!! Thank you to Kat for hosting such a heart-warming project. She worked her butt off making this happen! It was so much fun to follow all the postings on facebook and read all the excitment shared literally around the world! I have all six of my cards currently displayed in my inspiration frame! It is an open frame above my art table and I use it to observe things I am working on - or- more often post things that inspire me. These postcards are truly a source of inspiration and encouragement.
1st card I received is a daisy that is photographed in the most incredible lighting! It is from Christina Yates, a photographer in Portland, Oregon. Visiting her website shows her incredible work!
2nd was another flower to add to my bouquet! Beautiful pink blessings from another accomplished photographer, Kelly Ishmael. The quote that is on the card is: "All that we behold is full of blessings." William Wordsworth - so perfectly matched with the photo.
3rd - ALL THE WAY FROM SCOTLAND !!! Is a mixed media piece by Elaine of dreams and whispers! The front says Impossible Dream and on the back a wonderful note! Elaine describes her piece and herself! It really made this card so personal! Her quote to accompany this card, "The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking." Robert Schuller. How true!
4th is from Gig Harbor, WA from Judy Shipley - we definitely had a cosmic connection in this swap. Her card is a pic of her grandkids! So incredibly sweet - the quote on the front reads: Children see magic because they look for it!
How wonderful is that to remember day to day!!!
5th and criss-crossing our nation is a card from an artist I admire and who's work is on several of the sites I participate in regularly - Karen Isaacson! It is a vivid mixed media piece that regardless of how I position it looks amazing! I smile each time I look at it! You can visit Karen at http://iamrushmore.blogspot.com to check out her work!!!
And, of course, the card from Kat!!! Such an eye for beauty! I almost feel like I am in this romantic pathway and can smell the flowers.
I do know where a couple of my cards landed and loved how they were photographed to display. I am hoping to find out where the remainder went as I blog hop!
Once again, HUGE THANKS TO KAT! This is in reality the definition of my signature sign off: cheers, dana make art, make friends - share art, share souls
