Liberate Your Art 2017

These are the lovely postcards I received this year in LYA2017. Top left is from Lee Albritton, this is a mixed media called spirit of the Hawk, it won an award in an art showing. Middle top, one of my favorite trees, the dogwood, from Jeannette Knower, love this, and Jeannette lives not far from me in OR. The lovely pottery card is from Mary Krudwig, she painted and glazed these pieces. Bottom left, is from Allen Chinibi, a wonderful graphic design. Allen is from Calgary. The middle card is Kat's beautiful and colorful leaves. On the right is the card from Toni Hanner, She took a wine label and added it to a piece of painted cardboard.
Another part of LYA2017 is side swaps after the main swap is over. It's always fun to connect with even more artists and ones you connected with previously.

So far I have received 8 photos in the side swap. The top cacti is from Sheila Delgado in AZ. The rooftops are from Louise Mamet in France. Just beautiful. The blue coneflower is from Chandra Lynn, perfect pick for me Chandra, I love it.Then the artwork of Teresa Harrington Hazelbaker called Tree Spirit. with words on the back to "Get up off that thing and dance till it gets better" by James Brown, wise words Teresa. The lovely pink cluster of flowers is from another fellow Oregonian Tammar Stubblefield. The striking black and white of the daffodils is from Janice Darby in CA. Patsy Lawrence sent the acrylic and oil pastelin an altered photo book, picking up the colors from the original page. I would like to learn more about that technique. The watercolor is from Christine Brooks. Its of the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff AZ. A place I would love to see. I am waiting on a few more cards and will post another blog post when they arrive. Thanks to Kat, for the wonderful adventure and all of you for your wonderful artwork that you so generously share.
