Very belated posts: Brian Kalina and Anna Lloyd

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 (bkalina@verizon.net) 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.


  1. Wow, beautiful pieces! How wonderful for them to have landed in your mailbox. :)

  2. these are great! Im glad you are in to trading.. it is SO much fun! I have not quite got the handle of SCBWI yet.. have you joined the forum? I cant figure out how. Have you been sending your artwork in to any companies yet? I havent.. I need to get on the ball!

  3. These illos are wonderful! What a fantastic premise, an international art exchange. I would love to take part in something like this. I'm going to visit these talented artists websites.

    Have a very Happy and Prosperous New Year, my dear Ms. Shirley! Love you much!
