Postage People

Sound odd?'s not.  Just a wonderful ATC challenge set by Marion Bockelmann each year. It's such fun that I can't resist.  We have to make three ATCs using postage stamp 'heads'.  I did four, one is a gift for Marion....her choice.

Here are the ones I've sent:

You can see other participants on Marion's dedicated  Pinterest board.

I've done others in the past for various swaps.  These are some:

You can see why I can't resist.  What fun!

Liberated Art

Every year I join photographer Kat Sloma's postcard exchange.  She calls it 'Liberate Your Art', a perfect title, as everyone's art, or photography, in postcard form, flies in all directions around the globe.

 My submissions this year were:

In return I have so far received:

Carroll Davies

Liz Velichko
M.F.? (no other name or info provided)
Natasha Papoesek
I have two more to come, and they are running late, so I've missed joining in the Liberate Your Art Blog Hop.   If you click HERE  you will get to see the many amazing artists who've contributed to this year's exchange.

It is THAT time of the year again.  The International Collage Exchange is up and running.  There are TWO online exhibitions open for your viewing. One is for a permanent collection at  the art department of the Eastern Institute of Technology in Napier in New Zealand; the other is a selling exhibition.

I Think I Can Fly

The Admirer

Chained To The Past

The Offering

The above are not on show, but are a few of the thirteen I sent for exchange.

The exhibitions are both worth a look, click HERE to visit.

What's In A Name?

To me, titles of paintings are very important. generally, as I'm working on a piece, the title reveals itself to me. Often it is a play on words.  I always like a little whimsy.

Such as....

A WEB OF FLIES - collage/mixed media

FETE ACCOMPLI - acrylics

FETE being a celebration or festival that, I hope, has been conveyed in paint.  If so, it is indeed a fait accompli.
