Meeting the Goal (A Swap Update)

Have you ever looked at something big, thought it was insurmountable, but decided to try it anyway? Some things are optical illusions, brought on by perspective, like this building from Barcelona. It almost seems to go on forever, but that's really because of my perspective, right at the base. It's a tall building, yes, but it's not infinite.

That's a bit how I felt when I set the goal of 200 people in the Liberate your Art postcard swap. I knew it would be a big stretch, and it seemed a bit insurmountable. I knew I couldn't get there on my own, but guess what - the goal has been met! As of this writing, there are 228 people signed up for the swap. Wow! That's 1140 pieces of art that will be winging their way around the world in July. Actually, it's 1368 when you count my postcards too. I'm so excited! Thank you all so much for helping me get to this goal, by posting on your blogs, putting the button on the sidebar, posting on facebook, tweeting - all of that. I couldn't have done this without help.

There is still a little bit of time to sign up, if you haven't yet. I'll close the sign up on 4 June, next Saturday, and then the focus turns to execution of the swap. Visit the swap page here for the details if you would like to sign up.

And... there are new links added to the participant link list this week! Take a few moments and visit a few of your fellow artists who have shared links. I hope you will connect with one or two others this week and say hello.
