A Passion for Painting Award!
Today Vicki Shuck, a fantastic artist and fellow Pacific Northwester, nominated me for the Passion for Painting Award. How fun is that! I am honored! (I have been following her blog for a while now and love her work- follow her link, its worth your time!)
The ways this works is that I name 7 things I love, which are:
1. my brilliant husband and incredible son,
2. painting inside,
3. painting outside,
4. planting things,
5. thunderstorms- especially if I get loads of reference photos so I can paint them!,
6. the Pacific Northwestern Coast with its dramatic cliff sides and windblown, distorted trees and that wonderful life-giving salty air (I need to fill my lungs with it every once in a while),
7. and spending time with my mom, sister, aunt, uncle and cousins (a.k.a the rest of my family)- I pity everyone else in the world for not having the family that I have.
Next, I have listed seven, plus one, of the many artist's blogs I follow -because I really admire their work. Check them out!
I could have easily listed another fifteen...
IF YOU ARE TAGGED, should you desire to keep this going, you are asked to name and link to 7 others whose work you admire and let them know about it, list 7 things you love and put a link to the person who tagged you.
