The quite amazing and very talented David Sandum has for a few years now organised the Twitter Art Exhibit. Anyone can send him an original picture, on a postcard, and these are displayed and sold for $35 each to raise money for a local charity. The event has taken place in various locations around the world.
It’s a wonderful idea and when I learned about it I thought I would like to contribute something. Of course, immediately after sending my postcard I regretted it, having made the mistake of looking at the overall standard. There are so many incredibly talented people in the world! Still, off it had gone, all the way to Norway.
I’d lined this post up for today because at this point the exhibition is over and I thought I might be able to tempt one of you lovely readers into buying it. It’s all for a good cause, after all. (All money raised goes to Home-Start Moss, a nonprofit organization helping families in need.) However I’d failed to consider two important factors: I can’t seem to find where you can buy unsold postcards from, even though I’m sure I’ve seen it somewhere; and my postcard sold on the first day of the exhibition.
