2nd Twitter Art Exhibit - Moss Norway

I am excited to be able to participate in the 2nd Twitter Art Exhibit in Moss, Norway. Last year, when I initially started painting I participated in the first Twitter Art Exhibit. It was a great experience and I met many talented artists online.

David Sandum is a fantastic artist on Twitter from Moss, Norway who has organized this exhibit to raise funds for The Women's Crisis Center in Moss where abused women and children can get help. Artists from all over the world who are connected via twitter submit orignal art. The art is the size of a post card and represents an individual tweet. Around 300 artists are participating and it will be fun to see the variety of art and artists represented from around the world.

This year my submission was inspired by beautiful pink tulips that I received as a gift from my friends. The title of the painting was influenced by the subject but also by popular culture. (See if you can guess from where!)
