I participated in the Liberate Your Art postcard swap this year that Kat Sloma of Kat Eye Studio, hosted. Oh, what fun this was! I am so thrilled with all of the postcards I received – I’ll need to get a new cork board in the office to present them proudly!
I spent about an hour yesterday taking photos. I had all sorts of props outside with me, I wanted them all to be just right. I hope I’ve done them all justice.
Let’s not keep you in suspense, here are the postcards I received. 🙂
I feel I certainly need to showcase our gracious host’s postcard first. Not only because I like it so much ( fall is my favorite season and I like her use of white space) but because it’s hers.
She’s titled it “Immiment Downfall”; it’s beautiful isn’t it? (I know the photo is upside down and I like it this way but when I get a chance I’ll redo it properly. Sorry, Kat!)
Next we have a lovely postcard from Jill at Recycled Daze. The young woman is sitting outside a bakery in Harmony, PA. This really makes me want to find a pretty building and just hang out and relax.
Here is wonderful postcard that comes from Tammy Lee Bradley. I wish I enjoyed tea but though it’s not my cuppa (see what I did there?) I still enjoy looking at this card and can appreciate it’s beauty.
How about a really cool owl? This was created by Lisa Murphy from Reston, Virgina. I’d like to include her blog link but when I went to it to copy it to include it in my post, it says it’s no longer available and that the author has deleted it. I find this owl fascinating.
“Your secret is safe with me” is the title of this postcard. Janet Reid (jreid1031 on Instagram) included this quote about art that I feel is so perfect. “…this isn’t a contest but a doorway, into thanks, and a silence in which, another voice may speak.” By Mary Oliver.
Lastly, but certainly not any less important than the others is this postcard from Denise of Because Nice Matters. I’ve tried the link she provided for her blog, but unfortunately it appears to go to a different blog. At any rate, isn’t this wonderfully amusing? Her inspiration came from working at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Museum in San Francisco. And yes, it seemed appropriate to place this card at the top of our patio chiminea.
Thank you to everyone for a lovely postcard swap! I’m already thinking about what I might do for my postcard next year! And extra thank you to Kat and her team for pulling together yet another successful Liberate Your Art postcard swap!
Enjoy liberating your art, everyone!
