News flash: the economy sucks. The stock market is up and down, people are losing their jobs and homes, all sorts of businesses are closing down and nobody seems to have any idea what’s going on. That’s the bad news…
Now for the good news: even though the economy is tanking, it’s more important than ever to stay positive. We shouldn’t dwell on the negative news; it’s just not doing our souls any good. To that end, I have got something that will hopefully bring a smile to your face and brighten your day, and it’s called Feed Your Soul: The Free Art Project.
“What is this Feed Your Soul: the free art project?”
Well, every month I will share FREE ART with you from artists that I have invited to participate in the project. Each invited artist will contribute one print that you can print out on some cardstock and frame or even just thumbtack to the wall.
“Why are you doing this?”
Well, I love art and I know you do, too. I also know that when people start to tighten up the purse strings they tend not spend money on things that aren’t necessary for survival, like books, magazines and art. But, art is important for your soul. It helps rejuvenate, it’s thought provoking, it offers inspiration and can generally brighten an otherwise dreary day among other things. In addition to helping brighten your day and put a little spring in your step, I want to help promote some of my favorite artists.
“Which artists are going to be participating?”
I’m still working on the schedule, but lots and lots of Etsy artists are participating (I’m booked through June with at least 6 artists per month) and I will be debuting a new FYS pages with more batches of artists. Here’s a list of some of the contributing artists.
If you have any questions about sharing your artwork and becoming a part of this project, feel free to email me. If you’re looking to get some free art right here and now, check out the original blog post and get printing!
