Kat Sloma’s Liberate Your Art Swap

It’s begun! Woo who! For the next few weeks I will be sharing the postcards as they arrive. Can’t wait! Kat and her crew of volunteers have sorted and stamped, and the first batch is on it’s way.

As in years past, many of the participants have agreed to extra swaps, or “side” swaps. I have already received these amazing cards – YAY!

The Zentangle leaf is from Kat in the Appalachians. How did she know I have a thing for leaves? “Wonder” is from Sherry in Alaska. The wing is part of a map of Sherry’s city, how clever is that!

The snow filled trees, a photo taken in Rocky Mountain National Park, was sent by Sarah in Atlanta. I grew up in Colorado – Hello Rockies! The crane flew to me all the way from Montana. A really stunning piece of art from Amy. (I may be moving to Montana.)

Teena sent the graphic tree. It reads, ” Words are like the wind, some, stronger and more damaging than others.” Those words really resonate with me.

Amy in Montana created the wonderful crane collage. It is really super in person. You might remember I caught sight of a Heron in our backyard a few months ago.

I am amazed, how each of these cards has a special connection to me. Or I guess, I with them. Some of them I was able to choose, bet even so.

Thanks ladies – for sharing your wonderful art with me! So excited to take part in this years swap!
