Art Exchange

Sunday, March 8, 2009 at 6:37 PM
I am involved with 4 other online friends and artists in an exchange.  Sharon from Flat Sound of Wooden Shoes invited a few of us to join her and share our art with each other.  I got my first piece of art from Laura from Laura's Watercolors.  She does beautiful work and I was so thrilled to receive one of her originals.

A few days later Sherry's contribution from Late B(l)oomer arrived at my door.  Again, I was so excited to receive yet another fantastic piece of art.  Her brightly plumed rooster seems like he can almost prance off the yupo paper she laid him on!

The three of us that are left have yet to complete our end of the deal.  Jennifer from  Jennifer Lawson  is on her way back to Bali so it is going to take her a bit longer and my only excuse is life just gets in the way.  But I have begun my contributions to the exchange and am half way done.  I am humbled by the vast amount of talent in our online art world.  How fortunate to receive these beautiful originals from such talented artists.  


  1. I love the bright colors .

  2. What a talented group of people you are - these are gorgeous!

  3. Joan Says:

    Both of these pieces are lovely!!! I love doing exchanges and getting artwork from other people and having them receive something from me. Can't wait to see what you create.

  4. Marta, like mine, these are wonderful! I love the two I have received. They are hanging in my studio (really just the smallest room in the house) reminding me of the talented artists I have met through this journey. I have my work cut out for me when I get settled back in Bali.

    Thank you, Marta I'm glad you like the scene. And I love Sherry's rooster--such great color; that coxcomb is always so decorative!
    As for you, Jennifer, and Sharon: I say take your time ... anticipation is part of the pleasure, eh? I'll be delighted to receive your art in its own time!

  6. Sherry Says:

    Isn't this fun? I enjoyed working with the knowledge that someone else would have the results, and I really liked getting to know to the other artists in the exchange.
