One Saturday morning at the very end of January, on an uninspired gray day, flat sky indistinguishable from sea, and no wind to part the clouds or better the weather – I happened to read about the 2015 Twitter Art Exhibit.
This is the fifth installment of #Twitter Art Exhibit – a “worldwide art experience” that invites artists to make a postcard-sized piece of art (no guidelines or themes other than a precise size and suitability for family viewing). Artists donate their work to sell for $35.00 at an exhibition in Moss, Norway. Home-Start in Moss benefits this year (an organization that matches experienced volunteers to families with young children to offer help and support).
The very thought gave structure to a dreary Saturday!
Flipping through postcards already submitted – both strange ones and lovely ones – I began to wonder what to do. Such an opportunity to do good with a little picture – something that appeals across borders. Needs to be in Norway by March 1st. Color, what would be colorful? What about spring somehow?
