Excited to have a “postcard” in the 2019 Twitter Art Exhibit opening on May 11 in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is the first year this annual exhibit was open to digital art. I made a special mandala for it and printed it just twice, once as a proof for myself and then a second one for the final submission.

The Twitter Art Exhibit was started ten years ago and has been held each year in different locations. Each year the proceeds of the sale go to help a special non-profit organization. In 2019, it goes to support Art in Healthcare, “an Edinburgh based charity whose core aim is to have ‘a Scotland in which visual art improves health and keeps people well’. Art in Healthcare works closely with a broad cross section of healthcare providers in hospitals, GP surgeries, community care groups, hospices, healthcare centres and other bodies involved in the provision of healthcare to run a series of carefully tailored art workshops throughout the year. The programme of art workshops which is led by professional artists and aided by volunteers,have grown steadily since 2011 enabling Art in Healthcare to reach a broader cross section of patient groups. In addition the charity has a large collection of contemporary artwork which is displayed in healthcare premises across Scotland.”
