Artswap 2010

  Today is the day .......All over the world, artists are carefully packing their precious works of art and sending them off to fellow artists all over the globe!

Artswap 2010 !

This is BIG! 

And I am so excited to be a part of it. Right now, I can't say where my painting is going, you see, it's a secret. No one knows who is sending a piece of artwork to them until they receive it. I can however show you WHAT I am sending................

This swap is the "Brain Child" of David Pringle, a very talented artist himself. David started the swap by "Tweeting" it on Twitter as a way of connecting artists and sharing their work with one another. He is dedicating this November Artswap to fellow artist and friend Kristen Ettensohn, who sadly passed away this last July.

David is also going to publish a book featuring all the participating artists and their work. This book will be available for purchase after the swap is completed. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the KME Memorial Scholarship Fund

I am urging all artists out there to sign up for the next swap! You can go to Davids website for all the information. This was a fun swap and just look at all the powerful things that can happen when you get a group of talented artists together.......It can change the world!
