LIBERATE YOUR ART

Blogging friend, and photographer, Kat Sloma, organises a postcard swap each year that she calls 'Liberate Your Art'

Aptly titled, the postcards are your own images, either printed copies or handmade. Most of the participants are photographers, but there are some who work in different media, like me.

You send five cards and get six back, including one of her own.....this year it's this one....

 Kat is a talented photographer, and this is a gorgeous photo.

The other five that I've received are :

Vicki - Hula-la

Elizabeth Slade
Lisa Wright
Heather Black (sorry, can't find a link)
Suzee Ramirez
It's rather nice to imagine your art, or photography, winging its way around the world, and being held in collections of other artists.
