    Artist Inspired swap: Georgia on my mind Georgia O’Keefe ~Due March 29

    Withdraw by: March 25, 2019

    Number of cards: 3 for 3
    Number of participants: 25 maximum

    Artist Inspired swap: Georgia on my mind

    Georgia O’Keefe: “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.”

    Another inspired swap. This time it is Georgia O’Keefe. One of the most significant artists of the 20th Century who made great contributions to Modern Artist. From her bold colors to her innovative expressionist images, she explored the outer edges of her creativity. But she wasn’t without her fears. She once said: I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.

    Here are some of their works:

    https://www.georgiaokeeffe.net/

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_O%27Keeffe

    http://www.artnet.com/artists/georgia-okeeffe/

    Make three different O’Keefe inspired cards. The style and medium can be the same for all three or you can mix it up as you choose.

    Medium: Hand-drawn or painted, sewing, origami, hand-made stamp, etc. No collages, stickers, digital or photography. Handmade art cards only. Check with me if in doubt about your medium. Make something that would be hard for you to give up.

    Use your artistic skills and feel free to use your imagination and unique style. All cards must be original (i.e., no prints or copies).
    Most of all---Have fun!!!

    Requirements:
    *All cards should be standard 3.5” X 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
    *Cards should be flat enough to fit in plastic sleeves.
    *Send cards in plastic sleeves.
    *Withdraw early if you can’t do the swap, late cards may be returned if they can’t be swapped out.
    Mailing and postage:
    *PM me for my address when you are ready to send cards.
    * Make sure your user name, location and swap name appear on the back of your ATC’s.
    *Include your username on your SASE.

    * International participants: I will pay postage for first 10 players. Please include a SASE.
    *US participants: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope or stamps


    Returns: When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for players.
    An extra card for the host is always appreciated but not required.

    Anyone want to play?

    This looks super interesting! Can we emulate some of her early artwork that included skyscrapers? I find these paintings captivating and her struggle to find her voice in painting when it was considered masculine is seen in these earlier works.

    Welcome! Yes! If you love her early artwork then go for it. Can't wait to see what you create.

    Oh my---so many inspired artists have jumped in. Glad you joined in. I got to see her work several years ago when I was in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    Interested!
    What if we draw or paint something and then want to cut it out and put it on another background that we've also drawn or painted, will that work?
