Blog Award

I'd like to thank fellow artist Laura Hardie for awarding me my first blog award!!

Please check out Laura's wonderful pastel portraits on her blog-you won't be disappointed :-)

Following the guidelines of a blog award, I would like to award "A Passion for Painting" blog award to the following wonderful artists (and keeping it to seven was a bit of a challenge).

As I follow their blogs, these artists all pass on some of their passion in some way that resonates with me personally. So thank you for your spirit and energy, your creativeness and dedication, your technical abilities and openness to share...

Congratulations to:

Susan Abbott
Annelein Beukenkamp
Carol Feldman
Tracy Hall
Andrea Joseph
Mineke Reinders
Rachelle Siegrist


And now, adhering to the second part of the guidelines, seven things I like! (in no particular order):
- popcorn, popcorn and more popcorn
- dark chocolate
- Autumn
- feather pillows
- my 'muses' Suede, Katie, Layla, Bronwyn, TJ and Carlie and Iggy and Marbles
- mystery novels
- Ireland
