    Thanks for hosting this fun swap Sarat! And love the returns from Redplantlady, Dithespy, and Cindylou.

    Thank you! Sorry for the late response. Family issues have taken me offline for a while and I'm just catching up. I received on of your abstracts which I LOVE!
    Feel it. Express it. Share it.

    Am thinking of hosting a "Inspired by Pointillism"
    swap as well as "Cave art". Would anyone be interested in either or both of these?

    possibly cave art, but I can be rather inconsistent when it comes to swaps. I see some really neat swaps, but either don't have the time or I don't have a enough ideas to generate 3-4 cards. But yes to cave art - that could be fun.


    I had been thinking of offering an Assyrian art swap, but of course that is a whole different kettle of fish.

    Both swaps sound fun

    Good thing the cards are small for the pointillism work, I can see it taking forever Cave art would be really neat as well, a chance to learn.
    Sorry about the late response, got my cards and loved them! Thanks to bluesky for the really interesting gold textural piece with the glittery aqua details, really unique! What media did you use? The bold color field work from sillylily41 woke up my eyes when I saw it, thanks! Dithespy, what an exploration you have going on in the piece I received! Lots to look at there, thanks! Sarat, another great swap, hopefully during the colder months I will have more time to participate in the forums.

    Rick p... I used acrylic paint....the gold is called champagne gold (has soft shimmer) the aqua is a matte turquoise acrylic. I painted over a piece of open work Christmas trim and I think some of the glitter adhered when I lifted it off. I think I also used a metallic Renaissance brown acrylic.
