I'm a day late getting this post up, but we were on the road home from Chicago yesterday. This is the third year I've participated in Kats' fabulous postcard swap, and every year I enjoy it more. When I got home I discovered the last of the postcards I received this year, and they are the lovliest ones yet.
The first card to arrive was this beauty from Barbara Hurst in Arizona. You really should take the time to visit her blog and see the wonderful photography there.
My next piece of happy mail came from Evelyn Spikes in Elgin, OR. Not only is the photograph lovely, but the quote is as well.
This is the second time, I've been lucky enough to receive a pice of art from Suzette in Texas. After a lovely quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Suzette closes with this lovely thought, "May the seeds of creativity find their way to your door." Love it, and love this postcard.
I just love this rooster painted with acrylics on canvas by Meredith Gisness. I have a collection of chickens and hens I rotate through my kitchen so this fine fellow is going to find his way to the kitchen bulletin board.
Here when I arrived home was this beauty from Sheila. I'm not sure where Sheila hails from, but you can find more of her work here on her blog.
Last, by not least, was the postcard from our hostess (and my long-time blog friend), Kat. I'm so annoyed that the Portland Post Office stamped the front of the postcard rather than the back! Does anyone know how I might remove it without ruining the postcard?
Many thanks, Kat, for taking on this huge project another year! It inspires me every year, and encourages me to get my art out there. And thanks, too, to the wonderful artists whose work I received this year! All of them will be proudly displayed!
