“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.”
– Harvey Fierstein
The Mystery Project – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Sharpie
I painted this little postcard for a project with Art House Coop, in Brooklyn, NY and Prismacolor. The idea of the project is to make a stranger’s day. I received a little kit in the mail from Art House Coop, with a new Prismacolor artist pen and a theme. The theme for my card was “If tomorrow came yesterday”. I painted this little card and left it in a public place for a stranger to find. Isn’t that a cool project? 2000 artists are participating. I love it. Debi Engle says this is a rak, A random act of kindness. I like that! So far, I have not heard from anyone, saying it has been found, so it may still be out there. I can’t show you the picture of where I left it, because one of you clever people may figure it out… then it’s not so random.
