A few of my art girlfriends...
actually 21 of us...
unofficially kicked off our first ever Artist Trading Card
summer art project today.
We will each design 20 cards
this summer and fall
and get back together February 1, 2014 and trade
them with each other.
Knowing this group...I am certain that
ice cream cones,
wine, good eats, and lots of laughs will be involved...
almost every step of the way.
My mandala shown here
is entitled "Circle of Friends"...and was made
quite some time ago...
way before this project was even
in the wind.
I thought it a perfect complement
to the spirit,
enthusiasm, and positive wide-eyed anticipation
our little group together today.
I am delighted and tickled pink that my artistic Muse
so many kindred spirits with which to artfully play...
a "Circle of Friends"...indeed!
"A desire to share creative expression with others
and to find
peace, joy, and perspective
in mining the depths of my internal world …
makes me an artist."
