Postcard Swap

Back in July I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the oh so lovely Kat's first Liberate your Art Postcard Swap. 170 participants from 13 countries and 37 US States came together to liberate 1020 pieces of art through the use of postcards. 

How Kat manages to pull this off while simultaneously organizing a move from Italy to Organ and running an e-course, I'll never know - but pull it off she did. 
My art liberated on postcards. Clockwise from the top: "Home is wherever I'm with you" mixed media  painting on canvas, "Dino Bot" mixed media painting on paper, "Let Go" mixed media painting on canvas, and "In a world full of shame and regret do something to be proud of" photograph. 

My postcards, along with a lil note and painting all packaged up and ready to be shipped off

This was such a wonderful experience and I loved receiving such unique and lovely works of art from all over the world.  Each postcard boosted a sweet heartfelt comment or inspirational quote, but to read it in Kat's words, makes you realize the full depth to which this project was felt. 

All my lovely new liberated works of art!

 I love softness of this photo. It's so sweet and delicate

An acyrlic painting on canvas, this is the closest I'm getting to a summer here in Dublin. Every time I look at this sweet beach scene it makes me smile (and wish for a pina colada!)

A postcard from the amazing Kat herself!

 I love that it's a picture of a Vespa, I think of her every time I look at it!

A huge success drawn from a simple gesture, Kat created something that I know will continue to thrive and prosper for years to come. Thank you to everyone who participated and to those artists whose cards I received. Each and everyone made my day, and I as I hang them up around my place they serve as not only a constant reminder of how connected we all are, but what we are all capable of as well. xx

  1. YES!! Connected and capable. Those are some amazing words, my dear. And I have your little bot RIGHT HERE by my computer monitor, to brighten my day! The color goes perfect with my new studio wall color and I will have to get it framed. So happy to have you in the swap, but even happier to know YOU in real life!!


Thanks for showing some love :)
