Liberate Your Art 2012


For a second year, I’m participating in Kat Sloma’s Liberate your Art (international) Postcard Swap. The best part of the swap was the blog hop – an Open Day ay when all artists were able to pop into each other’s virtual studios. I’m still in contact with some participants of the 2011 swap and look forward to making new artistic friends again this year. If you’re an artist and/or photographer (many participants are photographers) I recommend joining in. There’s still time. You can get the philosophy and details here:
