LIberate Your Art Postcard Swap 2017

This is my postcard for the 
Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap 2017, my 5th year,
hosted by Kat Eye Studio
I made them from a mixed media piece 
done for a challenge...that I won btw.

This is my decked out envie that was
featured on Kat's blog for the swap. YAY!

And here we go with the ones I received...
Postcard # 1 titled "FLORAL CHALLENGE" comes 
from Linda Ursin in Norway, where she made
this work of art into apparel, home decor and even phone cases.  

My postcard # 2 hails from Ireland! This acrylic painting titled, "MOSS STONE" is from Jacinta. I just had to sneak out into my woods to find this perfect stone to display it. You can find the original painting here 

Postcard # 3 is from Janet McQueen in Manitoba, Canada. This digital painting is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
Titled: "Pigeon Feeder in Covent Gardens, London". 

You can find this and more of her work at

 Well, postcard # 4 is from my BFF Nina, 
from Happy Herbs Soap @ Two Crow Cottage, right here in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York. And since I frequent her gardens regularly, it seemed fitting to stage her wonderful postcard on the very gear that is featured in her postcard. 
How cool is that? 
I love it here! You can find her great soap, incense and oils on Etsy!

My soulful # 5 postcard is from Kathy McIntire of Solsisterstudio in Little River, SC. And since Spring has finally sprung, 
I ventured out into the sunshine to catch some rays.

The pièce de ré·sis·tance is from the wonderful host of the swap,
Kat Sloma of Kat Eye Studio, where you can learn everything you need to know about iPhone Photography.  Check it out!
