Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap Blog Hop

Kat Sloma from Kat Eye Studio hosts a wonderful "Liberate Your Art" postcard swap each year. I was very happy to be able to participate this year. I received six wonderful postcards from fellow artists I have never met, and I now possess a small piece of their art. It's such a fun way to meet other artists and share a part of their world. One postcard each participant received is from Kat herself. Kat is a wonderful photographer and teaches fantastic photography classes. She is also such a generous hostess! The postcard below is the one I received from her.


Her web site can be found using this link: www.kateyestudio.com.

The following are the postcards I received from the five other new artists friends.


Postcard by Linda Ursin. You may visit her web site at: http://lindaursin.net/gallery/


I don't have the name of the person who sent this wonderful postcard, but whoever it was must have intuitively known that I love dogs.


This beautiful scene is by Kat Van Rooyen. Her work can be see on her blog http://arty-kat.blogspot.com/


It was so wonderful to receive this postcard while spring seemed to be on a holding pattern. It was sent by Siobhan Wolf from wolftale.wordpress.com.


The last postcard portrays the love every artist has in their heart - paint, brushes, cans and grungy messes. It was sent by Renee Martinez.

Just in case you want to see the postcard I made, here it is:


I think moose are fascinating creatures, so I decided to play around with the Abercrombie Moose. :O)


I hope you  have enjoyed seeing these postcards. If you would like to visit the other artists who participated in this swap and are also participating in the blog hop, I'm including their links below:

  9. Wow Bill! You got some good ones! I love the painter's table, but i think that my favorite is the black dahlia. Those grow well here. Maybe I'll plant some just to see how they do!
