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.
