David Pringle (@dpringle on Twitter) had a brilliant idea one day that when shared, soon spanned scross the globe: Art Swap 2010. Artists from all over the world trading their work with one another on the honor system. The honest, tight creative community online honored David’s inspiring idea and committed to it. I was one of the fortunate participants!
So it was upon my awaking to a knock on the door this afternoon, that I received my art swap piece. A very well packed artwork from Hodoroaba Ancuta Iuliana ( @julliaH on Twitter & Facebook Fan page ) comes all the way from Romania.
Upon opening the package I was immediately awestruck at the beautiful art that sat before me.
Included was a very kind hand written letter sealed with wax. The seal had been imprinted with the letter “j”. I was very careful and manged to open the letter without breaking the seal.
The humidity here is very high today so after I shot these photos the piece was wrapped back up to protect it from curling. I’ll pick up a approprate frame this week to put the drawing in so I can display it in the main foyer for all visitors to see and enjoy.
Juilla is a wonderful artist and I thank her very much for blessing me with her work.
Thank you David for making your thought a reality, I’m looking forward to participating in the next round come September!
