Liberate your Art 2018 Postcard Swap

This is the art that I liberated this year...Heidrun Seibeneiker in Germany received my "Walk in the woods" postcard.
Anderea Farthofer in Austria received my "Leaves" postcard..
Sharon Lane of Houston Texas received my "Romeo  Robin"
postcard..
Beth L received my "Follow your heart" postcard
I do not know the destination of my remaining postcard sent..
If I remember correctly, lol, Kat received my "Abstract flowers" postcard :-)

Art spreads good feelings, tidings, and memories in every soul it touches..Art can cross /endure dimensions such as distance and time when shared..

My participation in Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap, hosted by Kat Sloma, is what began my pen pal art sharing adventure .. Kat's website is kateyestudio.com. She writes about the Liberate Your Art 2018 in her blog..

This will be my fourth year to participate in LYA..

Pictured is postcard #6,  the postcard I received from Kat..The paper weight is
a raw volcanic peridot..
In order to participate in LYA, artists-photographers from around the world must make postcard sized prints of their art to share/swap with other artists...

We also share greetings, verses, poems, and encouragement along with our art.

My very first postcard received, is from Natasha Papousek of Lemon Grove California..I love the soft serenity of the flowers, their pastel colors are gorgeous :-)


Pictured with Natasha's postcard art is a crochet scarf I made out of 100% linen..



3-27-2018  Postcard #2...  Beautiful card on the left was mailed to me by one of my partners in the Global He(art) Swap..                
The stunning postcard on the right is from Colleen Froats who is participating in this swap..Neither of these senders gave me details about location, art or website...Both of these beauties put a smile on my face..
Thank you!


My happy snail mail was the added icing on the cake of an already great day..I spent the early part of the morning having coffee with my two best friends..I bought myself these colorful tulips on my way home :-)

Simon likes to supervise me when I am making art, tending my plants, or simply lounging about :-)
Update as of Friday April 13th, 2018..Simon sustained a back injury and is on meds and crate rest for the next few weeks...
He is doing well..Prayers and healing energy still needed and appreciated!

Postcard #5

Beautiful art from Donna Draper..Like me, Donna is a nurse. Recently she has been practicing her art in a big way.. She calls herself Kindness Tree Art..She can be found on Instagram under this name ...I am so glad that one of her art pieces landed in my mailbox 


Donna's postcard art is pictured with a work in progress that I am crocheting..I am crocheting this
scarf from hand spun yarn I made with a drop spindle.

  2. Hi Lisa,

    I certainly love the postcards you received...all so beautiful. I especially love the one from Natasha in Lemon Grove, California. My mom was born near there. The world is really small sometimes. And I have a daughter who was born in San Diego. Anyway, I'll be in touch and I have a postcard here with your name on it. I'll get it in the mail before the weekend is out. Take care and see you next time...here and in Love Notes. Love to you.

  10. Lovely cards. So nice to see familiar names / participants are back again this year, like Jane Ross and yourself. And of course the new people and their creative expressions. I love your work, Lisa--esp the walk in the woods image. You could make a postcard out of the tulips and Simon for next year. Beautiful everyday shot! We are living through a winter storm this weekend in Wisconsin, complete with ice and snow. No tulips yet! Peace -- Michele at Sweet Leaf
