Weather is giving us spectacular views. I have art to post, a couple of pieces. They need to be scanned though, so I thought I’d share these views I have hoarded. Roughly a week’s worth.

I mentioned before the Liberate Your Art postcard exchange has been cancelled this year. Kat Sloma does such a fabulous job of hosting the swap. Life has other wonderful plans for Kat, and the time intensive event had to be crossed of her to do list.

I plan to send out cards to those of you that swapped with me last year. I have about 25 on the list. There is no obligation for anyone to swap with me in return. If you think you would like to, contact me by email, or here in a comment.

I thought it would be fun to send a card to Kat as well, and decorate the envelope as we often do for her. Should be a nice surprise don’t you think.

Jacinta Moore posted on Instagram that she would like to swap this year, and a MINILYA has begun. Reach out to her if you would like to add your name. Someone asked if they could be handmade cards. I think that would be a fun change to include both handmade, and printed cards.

I am thinking of sending my cards out mid to late March. They will be printed. I send cards out to family and friends, and internet friends that don’t take part in LYA. Too many to make by hand at once.

Looking forward to hearing what you think!

Happy day to you!

I started a series of these abstract landscape postcards. I have about a dozen 4 x 6 “scraps” from larger sheets.  To be honest, my mojo is taking a siesta. I thought, “How bad can I screw up a simple postcard?” HA! Ha ha ha.

Out of eleven, I think I have three good ones. Not too bad of a batting average. Not great, but not bad. I think. I won’t do the math on that one.

It does mean that I can say I am two days ahead. Woo Whoo! But I will likely keep painting, and hoping for something better. I’ve got three busy days next week and that means my posts will continue to be sporadic.

My first #21 was this abstract collage. Well, it was abstract until I decided to put flowers on it. The start was just me getting every last drop of paint off my brush (from day 20). It was like the energizer bunny, it just kept going, and going, and going.

This month whooshed by!  We are starting the last week of the challenge. Whoa!
