Liberate Your Art 2014 Blog Hop

You know how when you check your mailbox and all you find in it are bills and menus for the local pizza joint and a Weed Man brochure, you feel kinda gypped? Well, over the last few weeks, checking the mailbox has been way more fun than usual – every now and then, there’s been a wonderful little surprise waiting there for me :-)

After doing what I do best last year (procrastinating), this year I made sure to participate in Kat Sloma’s Liberate Your Art postcard swap. People from all around the world turn their art into postcards and send five of them to Kat. Then Kat and her trusty assistants send six postcards to every single participant. I hope they had self-adhesive stamps!

These are the postcards that I received (click the image to go to the artist’s web site)…

It’s interesting that four of the six postcards I received are nature-themed. And they all came from artists in the U.S.A.

Six of my paintings in postcard form were liberated out into the world. I wonder where their journeys ended….


Thank you Kat for creating a great way to share the art love! Looking forward to Liberate Your Art 2015 :-)
