When I tell people I am an artist they look at me as if I said I am a Wizard for a career path. In fact for years I dropped artist and said stay at home mom. Which still was received with more acceptance and respect than Artist. But I am out of the game closet and wearing my paint and smock proudly. Yes I am an Artist. My imagination is what I will be using to pay my light bill this month and no I will not be imagining the lights on. It is interesting how what you do and who you are can affect people. After all its not like I drug them out of their job and asked them to also be an Artist with me. We are not a cult we are a Culture! In fact artist, writers,chefs, and Musicians are what give us any sense of culture. In creation we are part of the divine and are therefore a little magical...scary. Perhaps our bare open honestly in the face of social convention is just to daring. Either way I am only daring to be myself.

I have been wanting to paint this story for a long time. A lone man walks a set of tracks in a storm on a journey to unknown parts. I expect to add lightning to the painting and love showing some new methods

I am very excited to announce the February Sherpa ATC Swap! Now that we have one month under our belt, many of us are feeling a little more confident as to how the ATC swap works. For any Sherpettes who are new to the ATC Swap, ATC’s can be a wonderful opportunity for artists to refine their skills by painting in miniature, experiment with different artistic mediums, find inspiration in the artwork friends have sent you, and uplift the spirit of other art friends by providing a bright spot in their day when an ATC is discovered in the mail.
SHERPETTE SWAP (Community ATC Swap)
As always, each ATC should be a handmade (not printed from a computer) piece of art and follow a few simple rules:
1. The dimensions must be 2.5 by 3.5 inches (so they fit in baseball card sleeves)
2. Must be done on cardstock or slightly harder (some use rice/cereal boxes)
3. Include your ARTSHERPA.COM NAME and MONTH/YEAR OF THE SWAP on the back of the ATC (for thank you’s)
4. Most Importantly ... HAVE FUN!
***The Sherpette ATC is currently a community run artist trading card swap, The ART Sherpa and her team are not responsible for the ATC swaps, please send any questions or concerns regarding the sherpette Artist Trading Card Swap to Alan Smith at AlansArtAdventures@gmail.com.
Keep art in your heart,
