Art Exchange



My sweet new friend, Kolleen, sent me an invitation to participate in an art exchange. Basically, I create a piece of art and send it off the name on the top of the list. I didn't know the person except through a couple of stories that Kolleen had told me. With a name like Pixie, how could you not be cute. I just learned today through a facebook post that she is a fellow artist and is doing a show in LA this weekend. I have to admit, I was fairly intimidated at the prospect of having to produce a piece of art and then to have to ship it off. my punk demons came out instantly! "who are you to call yourself an artist" "what if they hate it" "what if I can't come up with anything good". Then, taking the advice of two beautiful beings, I found my breath and then just went for it! "There are no mistakes" right? Well anyway, here is what I came up with. It all came together in about two hours and I am pretty happy with it. I can't wait to see what shows up in my mailbox and I am so inspired by people having blind faith in themselves and having the abilitly to open up and share. This is all just so cool.
