The wonderful Mr. Edward Burton nudged me the other day and told me to check out his blog, where he has listed me among some other pretty fantastic artists for "A Passion for Painting" Award. Edward is a great artist and friend to his fellow artist. Thank you Edward! If you haven't seen Edward's latest submission for the DSFDF blog, or just need some UV exposure, make sure you check him out!
Dually noted! I just found another nomination in my "Comment Moderation"- The wonderful Akiko Watanabe listed me as one of her 7. If you have not seen Akiko's work, it's a MUST SEE!
The Award comes with some cross-pollination/pay-it-forward dues, so here'r the rules:
• List 7 things you love
• Put a link to the one who picked you
• Choose 7 others to pass the award to
• Notify them of the award
The current loves of my life:
1 & 2) are 2 & 7 (My two boys are everything to me) :>)
3) Sunday hikes in the Mountains/Desert
4) Yoga Sutra's (I've been listening to an 85 segment series on YouTube)
5) Raisin Bran
6) Red Wine (Been into Smoking Loon- Merlot lately...but not right at the moment!)
7) Tequila (Patron) - 6&7 are equal, but totally independent loves :>)
...and MY love also extends to these 7 wonderful artists who have all inspired me in some way over the recent months (in no particular order)...
• Dean H
(I know I have listed 10- hey, rules are made to be broken)

Some of you know I like to employ very expressive brushwork in my paintings... apparently my two year old has been paying close attention! :>) This is a scene from some kind of divine comedy that is playing out in my life right now. I have finally got my act together and jumped back into the painting saddle- I had successfully blocked in my VERY simple composition on a painting for the DSFDF Wig Challenge (strangely- sans wig)- so I got up to put on a pot of coffee. In that time, Owen's inner artist manifested itself (again) :>) This is the first time he has saw fit to add to my work (and his hair). Usually he paints the carpet or the furniture. When my seven year old said "Dad- Owen has your paintbrush..." the vision that flashed before my eyes represented about two gallons of turpentine, a tree's worth of paper towels and about fifty hours of scrubbing- I was cringing when I rounded the corner to walk into my "studio". I busted out laughing when I saw THIS.
