Time really does fly. It felt like a quick week, but it was really close to a month of liberated art arriving in my mailbox. The first card was postmarked March 17th. And the most recent was stamped April 11th.
Thank you Kat, and many thanks to your helpers, for making the Liberate Your Art postcard swap happen. What a joy to receive artistic correspondence! I have to admit, that I do not often think of sending a real card or letter. I email often and send ecards for special days. Sitting here, I am wondering why I have never thought to send a postcard to family and friends. I still have some cards. I think that is how I will put them to use. I will send a small surprise.
For those of you visiting my blog for the first time, Thank you! If you scroll down, you will see my earlier posts on the cards I have received with links to all the artists. I have lost count, but I think I still have a few that are on the way.
I received both of these cards on the same day. Good day, Sunshine! Siobhan’s card is a “Dream”. There are gorgeous magenta petals that have fallen to the table. The soft focus gives me a peaceful, relaxed feeling. For some reason, I started thinking of candle light and a warm bath. Something I honestly never do, but wouldn’t that just make you feel so pampered and serene?
Sherry included a quote from Blake, “Exuberance is beauty!” I love that. I also love her motto: Conceive, Believe, Achieve! Her card is bold and bright and some of the flowers are 3-D! OK, maybe just 2-D. I love these blue blooms! It is hard to see, but there is stitching along the left side as well. Mixed media maven!
I count myself lucky, this is the second year I have swapped with Siobhan and Sherry. Thank you both for sharing your art and photography with me! Such a delight!
I am so thankful to be a part of this Liberating event. So much fun creating the cards I send out. Such a nice surprise when one is received. Kat treated us all to this gorgeous card. I just love her work!
Thanks again to all the artists and photographers who shared their art with me. I am always in awe of all the talent that is shared. Lori, Natasha, Lisa, Barbara, Melody – your blessings brightened my days!
Deanie, Shelly, Janice, Sherry and Siobhan – so grateful!
Take a look at this years art filled video!
