Thank you so much to the fellow artists, Chelsie Brady, Angela Elledge, Edward Burton, and Joanne Licsko who have been kind enough to tag me with blog awards! I am so blessed by the friends I have found on the artist blogging community. What a gift to not only experience so much creativity, but to gain so many friends along the way!

As part of this award I am to list 7 things I love and tag 7 other artists for this award.

1. I really love my family! They are always a source of joy, comfort, companionship, amazement and often entertainment!! :)
2. I love to paint.. I have always love to create, but have only recently found an unending passion and borderline addiction to oil paint!
3. I love to read these things and find out more about the people I care about, but am loathe to actually do it myself..
4. I love junk... the old, weathered stuff that most people would walk past, or, gasp!, throw away! 5. I love living in the country.. we have an abundance of wildlife and beauty in our yard and for me it's like being close to God out here...
6. I love going to New York to visit my daughter.... and I love when she comes home even more..
7. I love seeing other peoples art and ideas on their blogs! I find myself constantly amazed by how many talented, gifted artists there are and am always inspired to do better!

The artists I'd like to share do a group challenge amongst themselves and I am always so anxious to see what they do!!
1. Marie Fox
2. Silvina Day
3. Diana Moses Botkin
4. Michael Naples
5. Mike Beeman
6. Robin Cheers
7. Vicki Ross

Sally, thanks for choosing us for this award! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoy the Moses Botkin Challenge group's work. You won't believe what the next challenge is! Actually, non of us can believe it.

I browsed through you blog and was delighted with the fine quality of your paintings. I saw shoes. Very cool shoes. My daughter wears the same ones.

I'm afraid I won't be able to pass the award along this time. I'm busy planning an Artist Studio Tour for my town. Thanks again!

SALLY! thank you so much! I am subscribing to your blog so I can get up to speed with your art. I'm so thrilled that you like our challenge...we all sure do! It is a real 'challenge' in that we have to perform on a subject we'd most likely never choose for ourselves. Now that makes for a thrill!
