A Passion for Painting Award!


I have been given the Passion for Painting Award by the wonderful artist, Charlene Brown of Weekly Painting Worth 1150 Words. She has lived in exotic places all over the world and her beautiful paintings are like a magic carpet to these delightful venues. I encourage you all to pay a visit to her lovely blog.

The rules of this award are to:

  • List 7 things you love
  • Put a link to the artist who tagged you for this honor
  • Pass the honor on to seven artists you feel should receive the recognition, and let them know they have received this award
Here are 7 things, well, 8, that I love (beyond the obvious of family, friends, art and travel):
  1. the fragrance of orange blossoms, both live and captured in a beautiful perfume;
  2. dogs with expressive faces, the ones that make you smile just to look at them;
  3. sun reflecting off of the Chrysler building silhouetted against a bright blue sky;
  4. the colors fuchsia and coral, preferably together;
  5. hot "drinking chocolate" at Cacao in Portland, the perfect afternoon pick-me-up;
  6. whatever flowers are blooming at the moment, particularly tulips and poppies;
  7. Paris;
  8. the sound of my 98-year old grandmother's crinkly laugh;
And here are seven artists whose work I admire and am always inspired by. Please check out their blogs; you're in for a real treat!

Congratulations on your award!! It is well deserved, your watercolors are wonderfully loose and free, and take wonderful advantage of the intensity of the medium.

I am so honored that you chose me to pass the award to! Thank you Christine!

I'll add your blog to my blog roll, too!
