Draped Panels in The Charleston Airport

Killing time in the Charleston airport was joyful. There was a lot of wonderful art to look at throughout. Most have a river theme. At least that's how I saw it. Beautiful colorings and drapings and delight.I have tried to discover who the artist is but have not been able to. What a shame. If anyone in blogger land know, please let me know so that I can give credit here.

I love these draped panels the most. So graceful and elegant. The view changes as you walk around them. How sweet are they!

Mystery Art in the Antoinette Hatfield Building

I love this mobile. The trouble is, I can not find any information about it and as you cans see it is suspended in the dome of the Antoinette Hatfield building which is too high to get a good look. I don't know who the artist is or the name of the piece or what the materials are made of, just nothing. All I can say is that I love the free floating movement of the piece and how it changes color depending on how the light falls on it. I also love how i looks against a sky that changes color. The blueness of it all is quite peaceful!

If you happen to know, would you let me. Thanks.

If you follow this blog, you might remember reading about the 2012 Liberate Your Art postcard swap. What fun it has been to get something in the mail besides a bill and artsy mail to boot. I will share with you my own private collection. All in all there were

1152 individual pieces of art liberated
193 artists participating
11 countries represented

I will share wth you what I received>

First are the poppies, created by Elissa. It is her first attempt to use watercolors. What a stunner! Keep at it girl. You have figured it out. The quote on the card says "There is no such thing as being done with an artistic life." Julia Cameron

Next up from Elise Ann Wormuth, is a beautiful image of cascading roses. I love the antiqued feel of this image. Simply beautiful!

Our leader, Kat Sloma, included this beautiful image from her time in Italy, I believe. I love how the path leads the eye but the flowers encourage you to stall for a bit.

A mixed media collage from Maria Rinda Ontiveros reminded me of something I know only too well. I love the black and white images juxtaposed with the painted background and ever so slight red edge.

Next from across the pond, Tracey Fletcher King's kitchen art. Her delightful drawing of kitchen things ( I think she must be making lemon bars-YUMMO) is totally fun. I especially love the Kitchen Aid mixer.

And a fractal image from Darnita Howard is amazing. I was blown away and wanna know how to do this too!

Kat Sloma put together this video of all the cards that were sent through the mail. Take a minute to view it. It is lovely and tranquil. To see more links to artists blogs who participated, click here. Blessings to all the artists of the world.

I made this flag quilt in 1994 when I first started quilting. In fact in the class, called PDQ we made three quilt tops in 6 weeks. Each of my quilts got progressively smaller. The concept being taught for this piece was log cabin, which is the star field. Tiny, tiny log cabins. I really love this quilt and get it out for all American celebrations or remembrances. Yesterday was one of these which is still sobering after all these years.
