Where does the time go? I received these lovely items in an international art exchange and am finally posting them so that all of you can see them and hopefully check out more of these artists' work. "Welcome" is by Brian Kalina (firstname.lastname@example.org) of Pennington, New Jersey. I enjoyed receiving this hopeful image of a wanderer on his way to adventures in a city. His backpack mimics the swirly landscape he trods on. Wonderful palette, too, Brian! "Superb Blue Wren" is by Anna Lloyd of Australia. Her beautiful blue wren has such strength both in its stance and from his mask. I thank Brian and Anna for participating in the exchange, and for the invitation from Mônica. It's been a pleasure to receive such a varied range of wonderful art pieces.
