Last month I participated in the first annual International Print Exchange (read the post). Today I opened my mailbox to find an envelope containing the 8 prints that were my reward for participating. I sent them a limited edition set of ten prints, 8 of which they sent along to participants such as myself, and I received 8 in return. The other two are for archives and a possible gallery exhibit. I’m really pleased with the prints I received, quite a diverse group of prints in both subject matter and technique. I’m looking forward to future exchanges such as this. Now I just need to find some empty wall space so I can hang them up.
I spent all day yesterday working on a task that’s been on my list of things to do since I moved into my “new” place 2 years ago… Framing and hanging all of the art that I buy. It doesn’t help that I continue to purchase new art, so I had nearly given up on the task as completely hopeless. BUT, thanks to the lovely Seattle summer weather (torrential downpour), I was kept inside all day and therefore nearly completed the task. I like to buy art when I travel, so it was also a trip down memory lane… that piece I got in Portland, Maine. This one in Portland, Oregon. These were presents from friends, those I made. Now I can sit back and try to figure out where I’m going to put that print that’s coming in the mail from tinyshowcase.com.
