An Honor Indeed!
Teresa, from Blueberries, Art and Life has chosen me for an Art Blog Award. Thank you so much Teresa!
In conjunction with the award, the recipients are supposed to tell seven things that they love. I quit using the word "love" in describing objects quite a while ago when I saw that we're only to love God and people and loving anything else is a form of idolatry. So, I'll tell you things that I like a lot!
1. I LOVE God, my family and my friends.
2. Our animals are very close to my heart (2 dogs and a horse)
3. I have a passion for painting
4. I like fresh, homemade bread right out of the oven
5. I like spring when the flowers start to bloom and everything is new all over again
6. I like food fresh from the garden
7. I like the satisfaction of a job well done
I'm also supposed to pass this award on to seven other artist bloggers. It's a monumental task to choose as there are soooo many fine artists out there but I've chosen:
Barbara who is an artist in her own right. Her Poser creations are awesome!
Christine who is a first rate graphite artist - her portraits are especially beautiful!
Jeanette whose work is first rate. I don't think there's a medium she hasn't conquered.
Lori Andrews whose work I admire very much.
Lori Talbert I've been watching her grow in her art and become another fine artist.
Paulette, someone else who does excellent graphite work.
Teresa who does excellent colored pencil work and must have the patience of a saint to have chosen that medium!
Ladies, I hope you'll tell us seven things that you like very much and will pass the award on to other bloggers. If you're too busy, then just enjoy the award - you all deserve it!
There are so many more who deserve this award - again I thank Teresa for thinking of me!
