This swap is for hand painted outsider style art in any theme. What is outsider art? It is art by the self-taught (or appearing so) artist outside of the mainstream. It may be characterized by it's naive, innocent, flat, primitive look. It is unsophisticated and unrefined. Sometimes the artist is visionary, intuitive or eccentric. If in doubt, google the term and see definitions and images of outsider art.
Before you say you can't paint, go look at some outsider art on YouTube (StevenChandlerArtist) or Flickr or Google(Howard Finster, Leon Kennedy, WillardJ, Mary Proctor). Search Southern Outsider Art or Southern Folk Art, too, and you will find so many visionary outsider examples. http://www.visionaryart.com/outsider-artists.aspx
You will be painting on an 8"X10" piece of cardboard. It can be thick box cardboard or thinner food box cardboard. Or you can use posterboard.
This is sender's choice so you can start on your painting right away.
I'm making this USA only, because of postage costs. If anyone else would like to make an international one, go right ahead. Or, for that matter, if anyone would want to make another USA one, feel free to do that too. :)
