I have been working very hard behind the scenes to get the Shuffle shown in a few more places before I mail all of the art out to the artists. But things just are not working out. So I am officially calling an end to the Artist's Shuffle and it's tour. This is a bittersweet moment for me. I am actually tearing up at the moment. What a journey.
I am still so in awe of the amazing work all of the artists put out there. This project inspired artists and patrons from around the world. I got to make new connections and I dare say created new friendships! I hope all of the artists in the Shuffle will reach out to each other. All the contact info is in the back of the book. If someone's work inspires you then I encourage you to take time and contact them. We all love to hear an encouraging word!
I am going to be randomly picking canvases to mail back to the participating artists. Just to make sure we are all on the same page, you will not receive your own artwork back. Instead you are going to receive a random piece from the collection. I will be using a number in the hat system for this.
Just one last thing, I am broke as usual so I will be mailing canvases as I can afford it. Those of you that bought books will get your art first.
Thanks again to everyone who participated, encouraged the project and was gracious enough to let me show it.
Artists: I will be emailing you before I mail your piece to verify your addresses!

I wanted to thank all of the artists who participated in the shuffle. This project has pushed my limits and I have grown into something I never thought I could be. I am in awe of this project, and if I do nothing else with my life, this will be my masterpiece. My entire soul went into this project. I hope everyone enjoys the book.
My heart is filled with gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with the following artists:
By purchasing this book, you will help me get to LA to show the entire collection at the Echo Country Outpost. You will also help me cover the shipping costs to complete the shuffle, in November. Thanks for your support.
Sebastian is my 4 year old son. I tried to keep his attention away from the cartoons to give me commentary on the art in the book. This kid is hilarious. Watch the video if you get a chanc
