Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap 2013

has now finished,
with all of the postcards being sent
out by the lovely Kat and received 
by the participants.

These are the ones I sent.....

I am so happy to have received a gorgeous
and varied selection of postcards in return.....

(Karen Walker)
This photo is of the benches at
 the Pentagon Memorial,
and Karen has added the sentiment,
"Lest we forget...."
This superb image is sadly unsigned, 
and has the sentiment,
"The present moment is filled with joy
and happiness.  If you are attentive, you
will see it." - Thich Nial Hohn.
Andrea added the sentiment by Shing Xiong,
"In the end, it is not going to matter
how many breaths you took, but how 
many moments took your breath away."
Maria has added a quote 
by Robert Motherwell,
"Art is much less important than life, 
but what a poor life without it."

As well as the quote by Heinrich Heine
on the front of the postcard, on the
reverse there is a 
quote by Twyla Tharp,
"Art is the only way to run away 
without leaving home."
(Kat Sloma - swap Queen!)
Kat has named this piece,
"Adorned and Alone."
Kat has put together a video of
the postcards sent out this year,
what an amazing variety of artwork!

I really enjoyed taking part in this swap.
Many many thanks to Kat for organising it.

She liberated 1290 pieces of art,
by 216 artists,
from 11 countries.

Nice post. The swap was such fun and now seeing and reading how and where the art was received is a treat. I love the bicycle postcard. I hope the creator of this card will let you know who they are during the hop.

Hello! I love the card I received from you...the one in the middle of your collage. I also find it interesting that I got a card from Maria, Karen, and Andrea too! I love your work...beautiful each one and so creative. And, in a weird way, I have finally seen one of my postcards here on your's the static image on Kat's video link. Hooray!

This was the first time I participated in the swap...I'll do a few things differently next time, but what a great experience this has been. See you next time!
