Art Exchange II

It is now 4 days after the Art Exchange and I am just getting around to doing a post on what a great time it was. The reason for that is only partly that I have a cold and feel lousy. It was just as much fun as it was the first year, and I am already planning for next year. I was impressed with the art brought the first year, but this year was truly incredible. I think most people were happy with what they went home with, but it is hard to tell with so many people talking, laughing, eating, drinking and admiring their new art. I ended up with 7 new pieces of art. My first pick was a beautiful painting by Chris Cantu. Thank you Chris. After that I became the owner of a heart print by Tami Cole, a beautiful painting called "Fragrance" by Darlene Lucas, a tiny piece called "Swimmer" by Kim Weers, "Money Tree" by Cheryl Waale, "Neptune's Garden" by Jonlee Nunn and "Green Willow" by Marty Blu. I went for all 2D work this year, and I added 4 new artists to my Artists I Know Wall. I will write about that wall another time.

If you are reading this and you came to the Art Exchange, thank you for participating and making it such a memorable event.


  1. That's funny. I deliberately went for non 3D this year. I came home with so may beautiful paintings last year that I decided to give others the chance this year.
    My first choice was a whole pile of great collage material from Suzi Howell.
