I have to tell all of you how much I appreciate your comments and e-mails; I love the way blogging helps us to connect with artists and people who may be interested in each of our unique style of painting or subject matter. The connection that has happened in such a short time with many of you has been inspiring and moves me to want to learn and grow, not only as an artist, but as a person.
The oh, so very talented, Liz Holm surprised me with an award called, "a passion for painting award", designed by Kim Ratigan. Liz is one of those artists that is unafraid to share her heart, through her art, as well as her life. Thank you very much Liz, I am honored that you included me with such talented artists.
The award states that I am to list 7 things that I love and pass the award onto other artists whom I admire.
In addition to painting, here are 7 things I love:
1. God's Word.
2. My ever so patient and kind husband and the precious daughter he gave me.
3. Teaching my students at West Dallas Community School.
4 .Very cold, wet rainy days, but only if I can stay home.
6. Clients who become emotional upon receiving their pet's portraits.
7. The smell of a clean house, Sparkling Wave Pine Sol is my new favorite clean house smell.
Here are a few of my artists picks:
1. Nancy Medina
2. Olga Wagner
3. Sam Dolman
4. Judy Mackey
5. Steve Conrad
